NEST March 25, 26, 27 - STF 2022 Fringe Submissions! Here's mine: "A Greek Grows in Brooklyn - By way of story, authentic artifacts, photos and song, Barbara shares pivotal, poignant moments in her Greek American odyssey, from a small Island in the Aegean to nationally acclaimed Bilingual (English/ASL) Storyteller/Thespian/Impresario! Be prepared to get up and dance. Opa!

What is a Fringe, anyway??

A Fringe is an opportunity to showcase performances that are one or more of the following:

New works
Experimental works
Unconventional pieces in topic or presentation
To get your imagination sparked, here are some examples one might consider:

A string of stories on a theme that ties the show together
A long form fictional, personal or historical story/program
A story told in mime
A story that includes a multi-media aspect or incorporates other modalities aside from spoken word (music, movement, etc)
All Fringe performances at Sharing The Fire should be related to storytelling in some fashion.

All Fringe performances should be performance ready. While the show can be a works-in-progress, it should be in a presentable stage. Simply talking about your project is not acceptable.

How are Fringe shows for Sharing The Fire selected? Glad you asked!

Fringe submissions are randomly chosen by lottery. They’re not vetted. Everyone has an equal chance to be selected!

However, if you are selected for the Olio performance you are not eligible for a Fringe in order to allow as many people as possible to have an opportunity to perform and strut their stuff!

There will be 8-9 Fringe slots, depending upon the schedule. They will be held concurrently with the workshops or swaps.

The Fringe performances can be between 45 minutes to 90 minutes in length. This can include a Q & A, a participatory component, etc. The performance does not need to fill the whole 90 minutes.

TO SUBMIT, PLEASE SEND:

The title of the Fringe performance (or working title). Make it tantalizing!
Name(s) of performer(s)
A short description of the piece (this will appear in the program, if selected)
Send the above information to Steph Tassinari: [email protected]

GOOD LUCK!

Barbara Aliprantis, Founder/Artistic Director of the NYSE, will be sharing one of her favorite stories, "THE FOUNDLING" - In the late 1800s, a young man finds an abandoned infant in a basket along the shore of the Greek Island of Paros. The villagers nickname it "The Foundling", and the man raises it with his own children. To this day, the child’s descendants love to tell this heartwarming story. - “Raise a child, spin gold…” – Traditional Greek Saying

Last Tuesday, we heard stories about torturing SIMS characters, revealing trips to Japan, the rise and fall of a Jeopardy champion, and one intense and dysfunctional left-turn across a highway. Our featured tellers Matthew Peters, Emily Warren, Wes Hazard and Jude Treder-Wolff all brought heart and talent to the Cornelia Street Cafe underground stage.

We also had a full slate of bold open mic'ers: Bernie Block, Foxy Squire, Nick Zaharakos, Atahra Daily, and Emmanuel Obasuyi. And they were supported by a warm and wonderful crowd. Let's hear it for everyone!

As always, but especially, thank you to the Cornelia Street Cafe for supporting our modest storytelling show and our community for so many years. What a fantastic, intimate and special place to have a show. Thank you.

Please share your own pictures in the comments! We did our best with a phone camera, but the more pics, the better!

The Cornelia Street Café, a West Village fixture since 1977, is set to close

Our long-time home for storytelling - 21 years, every second Tuesday of the month - is currently set to close at the beginning of January. We are going to miss Cornelia Street Cafe, the basement space that it has given so much to artists, and the community of wonderful people that surround it. Get out to the cafe and show it some love before it's too late.

The Cornelia Street Café, a hub of the bohemian arts scene in Greenwich Village, has announced that it will close forever on January 2, 2019. The bistro's trade

Thanks to everyone at last night's New York Story Exchange! Michele Carlo brought together a talented lineup of tellers, comedians, poets and musicians. We heard about Omar Capra's secret Spanish, Vijay R. Nathan's transmutative celebrity poetry, Jennifer Delfino's songs about bicycles, dreams and vaginas, and Phillip Giambri's friendship with a neighbor that wanted to buy a truck.

Our open mic list was long, but we got through everyone! Thanks to the brave tellers that shared their stories!

Thank you to Cornelia Street Cafe for providing artists a venue to share stories for all of these years. Their staff couldn't be more supportive while trying to balance any number of shows, duties and checks.

Please enjoy some photos that were taken before our phone's battery died.

We'll see you next month!

Hi everyone! I (this is Jeff Rose) volunteered to story coach a doctor for this fun event about death and dying at tomorrow night at Housing Works. Hope to see you there.

The Nocturnists began in 2016 as a scrappy gathering of medical residents sharing personal stories about life in medicine. Today, it is a popular live storytelling event in the Bay Area, hosted by Emily Silverman, MD, where physicians and other health workers perform in front of sold-out audience...
