Story Cafe

hosting PERFORMING ARTISTS & POETS  

about

STORY CAFE

Story Cafe, as part of the Story Trio, focusses on the Performing Arts and Poetry.

We host 2 EVENTS in our own Story-Lab on a monthly basis:

 

Playback Improv Community Event 

 

Personal stories told by the audience at the invitation of our conductor, are played back by our team of actors and musician. Some audience members have been to a previous show, and are ready to participate.

 

If it's your first time visiting this event, don't worry, the evening unfolds effortlessly, or so it seems.

No need to have a story ready; they will emerge naturally, and often we find that the one story played-back leads to the next story told. 

Performances are given once a Month, usually on the first Saturday of the Month, from 7 to 9 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm. The event is free; not suitable for children. See Calendar for dates.

Open Floor (Open Mic)  Community Event

This event provides an opportunity for any (aspiring) performing artist to try their freshly written song,

or present a monologue, their poetry, a dance, a comedy piece, or what-ever anyone wants to present to

a small audience. (At one time we had a fire-eater!) 

 

Since we don't have a separate Poetry Event (at the moment) we very much welcome POETS to join us in the Open Floor!

A great opportunity for a beginner to get some experience; equally an excellent place for the more experienced performer to fine-tune their art-form, or to try a new piece. This is not the place to perform standards; we focus entirely on non-copyrighted music!

Once you arrive at 7 pm, put your name on the sign-up sheet and you're included.  The sign-up sheet is no longer on the table from 8 pm.   This event is free; not suitable for children. Doors open at 6:30 pm. 

Open Floor is usually on the 2nd Wednesday of the Month; see the calendar for dates.

EVENTS & WORKSHOPS
StoryRound Community Workshop

StoryRound is an activity that we facilitate in various places in the community. 

Businesses, schools, non profit organizations, hospitals, churches, community groups, are examples of settings where we create a space for relevant stories. 

One of the benefits of Story Round is to enhance communication.

Once stories begin to flow, certain themes may emerge and participants discover connections and a new appreciation for one another.

If need be, your group can come to Story Lab in the Harris Building on 111 Division Ave. S. Grand Rapids. The StoryRound workshop can be done at this space if you prefer.

If you have a special moment in time. You can relive it here. Where timelessness, agelessness harmony meets exquisite theatrical interpretation with equally superior coffee. You will be at home.

Everything about the Story Cafe is spot on.

John Nowak

Excellent coffee for less than you pay at the chain coffee houses. Every cup is made fresh and is of high quality. The owners are friendly and care about their business. I would go here over anywhere else in town.
