over A cuppa : open call for´stories of the inanimate´

We gather to share stories of the inanimate – to give voice to the voiceless other – inanimate objects which are so much a part of our lives, an extension of ourselves, reflecting what we are, what we want to be. They speaks to us, we  talk back – silently . They manipulates us in many ways we don´t perhaps realize. Who belongs to whom – who owns the inanimate, controls it ; or are we now become the other ?

The inanimate has its story, only in ways we tell them.

The November session of storytelling will be held at Cafe Toto on November 29, 2017, from 5 pm – 8 pm.

We look forward to your stories.

The guidelines are as follows
