It isn't hyperbole to say that the folks at Story Story Night have covered it all. When the Mayan long-form calendar ran out, they held an apocalypse story session. When the Earth wasn't sucked into a black hole, well, they held a Story Story Night for that, too.
There are, however, some things that are the province of Story Story Late-Night, the adults-only, 21-and-over offering. All those subjects that are too taboo for polite company—religion, politics, sex—are potential targets, and the focus heads toward the latter Monday, April 29, at the Visual Arts Collective.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the stories, centering on the theme KiNK, start at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $8 in advance or $10 at the door.
KiNK is hosted by Story Story Night Artistic Director Emma Arnold and Boise musician Dan Costello, and promises, in Arnold's words, "unfiltered, uninhibited and hilarious honesty." The evening also features a few chosesn audience members seeking the chance to tell a true story without notes or inhibitions. For those needing more motivation to speak up, subject-relevant prizes go to guest speakers.
Future Story Story Late-Nights follow the same model of no-holds-barred storytelling, with upcoming themes including Reckless, on Monday, May 27, with hosts Emmanuel Vera and Dustin Chalifoux; Excess, on Monday, June 24, with Dylan Haas; BiGot, on Monday, July 29, with Sean Peabody; and Bad Influence, on Monday, Aug. 26, with Jen Adams.
