This event is being produced in collaboration with Vittles. Vittles is a team of documentary filmmakers who make short films about the intersections of people and food. Culture, community and identity all revolve around our most essential need: the act of nourishing and sustaining ourselves. Traditions and memories. Indulgence and inequality. Universal stories and deeply personal connections. Vittles seeks to follow these threads and attend to the big questions.
This event will be hosted by The Monti's Executive Director, Jeff Polish.
The Monti is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create community through the telling of stories. Typically, there are five storytellers for every show, and tellers are invited in advance to tell stories.
There are four requirements that all stories must follow:
- All stories are true.
- All stories are told without the use of notes.
- All stories adhere to the twelve-minute time limit.
- All stories must revolve around the theme, Food.
- Aimee Argote, Musician
- Nicole Accordino, Good Food Revivalist
- Tanya Catolos, Owner of Daisy Cakes
- Joseph Bushfan, Owner of Joe's Diner
- Sarah Vroom, Bountiful Backyards
Tickets for this show go on sale on Tuesday, June 5th at 10am.
When & Where
The Monti is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that invites people from the community to tell personal stories without the use of notes. It’s just simple storytelling. Each month, events are held around the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area and as far away as Greensboro. The goal is to create an intimate, open, and fun atmosphere where people can relate their personal experiences to one another through narrative.
In March 2009, we launched an offshoot to The Monti called The Monti StorySLAM. This format, most similar to an Open Mic, invites people – anyone – to tell five-minute stories on a given theme of the night. Each night promises an unexpected and refreshing night of provocative entertainment.
