Solo Speak

With Shay Knorr 
January 29, April 29
7:30 pm
Admission $20 at the door, $17 online (see below for link)

Solo Speak is a personal story telling performance group.  Shay Knorr started the project in Bend in 2013 producing story shows and teaching workshops.  Then it moved to Portland where in 2017/18 Shay produced a monthly show called “Nevertheless We Persist – Stories by Women”  which was very well attended.

“Lives = Stories” will be Solo Speak’s first show since moving to the beach last year. These are real life true stories of people lives told without notes. You will laugh, you might cry, but you will leave the show changed somehow.  The storytellers for this event include Shay Knorr, Scott Fisher, and Chaz Miska.

If you love The Moth, you will love this…

Solo Speak’s mission is to be a forum for the sharing of personal stories for grown-ups. The art of storytelling can bring groups together, can bring understanding to people from different backgrounds and beliefs, can share pain and joy and let us know we are not alone.

Tickets can be purchased online.

Shay will also lead an introductory workshop on how to bring your stories to life on the stage.
