An Experiment in Storytelling

I'm putting together a Multi-media 360 Storytelling event on Friday the 14th at Strawdog Theatre. There will be live storytelling, pre-recorded storytelling via video, and other types of storytelling (see below)....oh, and the bar will be open.

"Oh, no!" you say, "I can't make it to Strawdog Theatre in Chicago on Friday night at 11pm. I'll be in Little Rock organizing my Chuck Dovish's Traveling Arkansas VHS collection."

You're in luck! If you can't make it out to Strawdog Theatre in Chicago on Friday night at 11pm you can watch via the INTERNETS!!! (caps lock borrowed without permission from @travisbedard and the above word "INTERNETS" is actually a "Link" that will take you "here"-

"That's awesome, Kyle!" you say, "I'm super excited about this and I would like to participate!"

Well, you are also in luck! There are several ways to play!

Experiment 1-
Come and listen to stories and share a story of your own! We'll get started around 11pm at Strawdog Theatre in Chicago on Friday Night. There is a $5 cover that will go to pay the charge for the space. Any additional funds will go back to to fund more theatre ideas like this one!

Experiment 2-
I'd like to read a fictional "And then" story written by the twittersphere. I will take all the posts that have posted with the tag "#360exp" from now until Friday May 14th at 6:00pm CST. I will read the "story" towards the end of the event on Friday. It will most likely be a beautiful mess but I'm interested to see what happens.

Experiment 3-
Skype a story- if you are not in Chicago (or in Chicago and trapped in your pajamas) and want to tell us a story, you can Skype in from where you are! Iceland? Turkey? Logan Square? Just Skype to khambone360 and we'll put you in the line up.

Experiment 4-
Got any ideas? I'm listening.

Also if you want to tweet-up or follow along on Friday-we'll be using the tag "360s"
