MOTH X exploring ‘New Beginnings’

A platform for theme-based live storytelling, for Generation X, inspired by the hugely successful MOTH talks that started in New York 20 years ago. MOTH X presents true stories, performed live without notes by 6-8 brave men and women, either professional or amateur performers, storytellers or musicians. The only criteria is they have to be 40+, involved in some way with the Jewish community and prepared to be vulnerable!

Each performer is given 5-7 minutes to explore in their own way, the theme of New Beginnings.

As with all MOTH events – now performed around 25 countries, the audience is the same age as the performers, so truth is paramount and a safe space of the essence.

Ticket price $20 (or $25 at the door)
