The Moth Radio Hour

Sundays at 9 p.m.

Moth storytellers stand alone, under a spotlight, with only a microphone and a roomful of strangers. The storyteller and the audience embark on a high-wire act of shared experience which is both terrifying and exhilarating.

Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate and often enlightening experience for the audience.

Coincidence? I think not! Prepare a five-minute story about cosmic justice. Did a rude comment come back to bite you? Or have you unwittingly saved your own neck though an act of random kindness? Whether you’re fated for success or doomed for failure, what goes around comes around. Better tip your bartender!

Prepare a five-minute story about smiles and sunshine. Think unbridled joy — landing the dream job, winning the talent show, or bowling a perfect game.

The Moth — our monthly storytelling series at Café Instanbul — was back this week, featuring stories ranging from the sweet to the absurd. The theme was “Love Hurts” and if these stories are any indication, boy, does it!

Each month at The Moth volunteer storytellers each take five minutes to tell a true story, and some of the best (as voted by the audience) are aired on WWNO here in New Orleans, or maybe even nationally on The Moth Radio Hour.
