Venue: Satori Stage, Bratislava

We’re back for another round of personal stories told live! Each show has a theme and the storytellers explore and interpret it in their own unexpected ways. Our tellers are selected to reflect diverse voices from various backgrounds. We also invite one or two audience members to come on stage during the event to share their stories.

All speakers have 5 to 7 min. to tell their stories. Don’t miss out on this one of a kind event described as a cross between documentary and theater, creating an intimate and often enlightening experience for the audience and tellers.

Theme: Bratislava

For our 11th installment of Bratislava True Stories, we’re paying homage to the city where Story Nights started, the city we (locals and foreigners) call home. In this city, we walk its narrow sidewalks, drive on its congested roads, have love affairs in its anonymous panel buildings and daydream in its vapid office buildings. This small capital city contains heartbreak and joy, love and loneliness, suffering and dreams.

In homage to our city, we’re presenting 10 storytellers from all walks of life to share their Bratislava stories. Expect to hear personal tales that are relatable, moving, inspiring, funny and straight from the heart.

It’s going to be one unforgettable evening of ordinary people, telling extraordinary stories.

FAQs:

Q: What type of stories can I tell/ hear?

A: We want people to share real life stories about their lives – and every event has a different theme but the most important thing is it must be your own real story.
