Dreams 13.11.17

At 7:30pm - 10:00pm, Hackney Picture House, Mare Street

Most of us grow up with an idea of our dream life – our perfect job, perfect house, ideal social circle. Perhaps you chased after your dream and found everything you wanted. Or maybe you decided that the reality could never match the fantasy. Or it could be that a particularly vivid dream one night helped you wake up with a totally new perspective.

Come along to tell your story in a friendly, encouraging environment, or listen to others share theirs. Stories must be true and they must be about the storyteller.

Entrance £5, doors open 7.30pm, stories from 8pm.

Appearances 20.11.17

At 7:30pm - 10:00pm, Brixton Ritzy, London

What does your look say about you? Are people surprised that you are different from their first impressions of you? Perhaps your appearance means a great deal to you and you spend ages getting the right look. Do you have a public or online profile that makes you appear different from how you really are.

Spark open-mic evenings involve inviting members of the audience to tell a true personal story from their life of about 5 minutes in length. We create a warm friendly environment that makes it easy for anyone to get up on stage and share something from their lives.

Entrance £5. Doors 7:30pm. Stories from 8pm

Role Models 11.12.17

At 7:30pm - 10:00pm, Hackney Picture House, Mare Street

How do we decide what kind of person we want to be? We may look to our parents, sisters, brothers or friends for guidance; sometimes a fictional character, historical figure or iconic performer can shape our view of the life we want to live.

Whether you want to talk about the ways in which a role model has inspired you, or discuss your own attempts to set a good example for others (successful or not!), come along to tell your story in a friendly, encouraging environment, or listen to others share theirs. Stories must be true and they must be about the storyteller.

Entrance £5, doors open 7.30pm, stories from 8pm

Family Ties 18.12.17

At 7:30pm - 10:00pm, Brixton Ritzy, London

We all have families with their own dynamics. Families can be volatile, fractured, supportive, oppressive, wonderful and many more things. What binds you to your family members? At this time of seasonal celebrations we want to hear stories about your family connections. Come along to listen to others share stories or tell one of your own.

Spark open-mic evenings involve inviting members of the audience to tell a true personal story from their life of about 5 minutes in length. We create a warm friendly environment that makes it easy for anyone to get up on stage and share something from their lives.
