Literary Arts and The Moth are bringing a new lineup of storytellers to Portland! As one of America’s most loved storytelling organizations, The Moth features live storytelling by luminaries in the arts and sciences, newsmakers and news breakers, and everyday heroes (and even a few reformed villains!). Each Moth Mainstage show features five storytellers who developed their true stories with help from The Moth’s directors. This year’s lineup will be announced soon.
This year’s performance is now sold out. Sign up for our mailing list to be among the first to know when our events go on sale.
Since its launch in 1997, THE MOTH has presented thousands of stories told live and without notes. Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Through ongoing programs in more than 25 cities, The Moth has presented over 20,000 stories to standing-room-only crowds worldwide and it currently produces more than 500 live shows each year. Additionally, The Moth runs storytelling workshops for high school students and adults in underserved communities through their Education and Community Pograms and develops innovative applications for Moth storytelling through their Corporate Program. The Moth podcast is downloaded over 44 million times a year, and each week, the Peabody Award-winning The Moth Radio Hour, produced by Jay Allison and presented by PRX, The Public Radio Exchange, is heard on over 450 radio stations worldwide. The Moth’s first book, The Moth: 50 True Stories (Hachette) was an international bestseller and its new book All These Wonders: True Stories about Facing the Unknown from The Moth (Crown) is available now.
