FoxTales storytelling event slinks into Gibraltar

Dasha Kelly started FoxTales as a storytelling birthday event in 2014, and the party never stopped. The series continues tonight, Tuesday, Feb. 7, at Gibraltar, 538 W. National Ave.

The difference between FoxTales and other storytelling groups, such as Ex Fabula and The Moth, is that the storytellers are generally people who do not consider their story to be art.

"Most of the invited tellers have never been to a storytelling event." says Kelly, a former co-host of Ex Fabula. "That said, there are a number of FoxTales regulars who have, in fact, found their way onto the big stages."

FoxTales is a storytelling event, but also a social event.

"In October, for instance, everyone hung out afterwards, talking about the stories, drinking beers with the tellers, playing a monster round of Jenga," says Kelly.

All proceeds support Still Waters Collective, an arts outreach and community building initiative.

"The room – and city – shrinks when we listen to stories and celebrate a shared journey: life, joy, loss, confusion, clarity, adventure, reckoning, love, fumbles and many, many hugs and high fives along the way," says Kelly.

FoxTales starts at 7 p.m.; seating starts at 6:30 p.m. A $10 donation is suggested. For more information, go to the Facebook invite.
