#34 • Amy Preston-Samson (Season 2, Episode 3)

The Witches by Amy Preston-Samson

This week, we have a story from Amy Preston-Samson, PhD candidate and first-time storyteller. She told this story for the 6th anniversary of Confabulation Montreal. Our theme that night was, Now we are six — stories of childhoods lost and found.

Amy developed this story after working in a group workshop which inspired Montreal’s own Confab Story lab. If you’re interested in taking a public workshop, you can get more info here.

This episode also featured Bonnie Harnden – she’s an Associate Professor and practicum coordinator, in Drama Therapy, and Creative Arts Therapies at Concordia University in Montreal.

Confabulation in Toronto!

We’re spreading our wings, and heading down the 401.

That’s right friends, like all good Montrealers, we’re moving to Toronto! (Well some of us did…) Join us the first Wednesday of every month at The Burdock Music Hall, starting on March 2, 2016.

With our first show in Toronto it only seems fitting to return to the very beginning of Confabulation with the theme that started it all — Firsts! Expect true stories, told by the people that lived them, about first: kisses, crushes, punches, cigarettes, high fives, halloweens, dances, votes, days of school, friends, enemies, casual acquaintances, jobs, firings, firings out of a cannon, encounters with the Western Canon, marriages, divorces, babies, camping trips, explosions, performances, brushes with the law… anything and everything!

Full line-up of storytellers to come.

Tickets: $8 in advance, $10 at the door. (You can buy advance tickets here)

Doors open at 7pm, Show starts at 7:30pm
