Take Two Storytelling: March 15th!

  • C'mon Everybody 325 Franklin Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11238 United States (map)

One true story, two endings: one the way it actually happened, and the other where they rewind time to make it all turn out differently. What happens when you take the other fork in the road, right the wrongs or wrong the rights, say what you could have said, do what you could have done, flip to a different page in the choose your own adventure? When the only thing between a storyteller and the perfect ending is the real ending, they bring it to Take Two.
Co-hosted by Elana Lancaster and Harvey Katz

Susan Kent is a Deep South refugee now living, writing and storytelling in NYC. Her work has appeared on Snap Judgment, The Moth Radio Hour, and Kevin Allison’s RISK! podcast. She’s founder of the Dead Parents Club Storytelling Series, storytelling curator for The Tank, and host of Tell It: Brooklyn. Tweet her @TheSusanKent.

Steven Berkowitz is a MothSLAM winner who has taught  storytelling for the Moth's Community Education program.  He has told stories at And I Am Not Lying, The Adam Wade from New Hampshire Show, Yum's the Word, and more. He has also appeared on Scientific American's Science Talk podcast.

Shawn Tristan unintentionally escaped the city to live in the woods, and still hasn't quite found his way back home.  He is a writer, artist, activist, and unofficial therapist, and had a brief summer in his early 20s when he thought he could live on love and art alone, until he had to find health insurance.  He's been seen clowning, singing, talking to puppets, and telling personal stories at Queer Memoir and Tiny Dangerous Fun in NYC, and on various college campuses.  Offstage, he does the same things for the amusement of toddlers.

Tracey Segarra is busy. She is an award-winning storyteller, producer of a bi-monthly storytelling show, Now You’re Talking, a workshop leader, public speaker and a member of the board of directors of the National Storytelling Network. While she discovered storytelling later in life,  she has since embraced it with the fervor of an evangelist, and it is her mission to spread the transformative powers of storytelling far and wide.

Michele Carlo is a storyteller who has appeared across the U.S., including the MOTH’s GrandSlams and Mainstage shows in NYC, and on NPR with Latino USA. She is also the author of the NYC-set memoir Fish Out Of Agua: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks) and produces a weekly show on Radio Free Brooklyn called Fish Out Of Agua with Michele Carlo.
