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

Good Date, Bad Date – February 7, 2015

Be sure to join us at Mainline Theatre for another night of Confabulation — Montreal’s premier monthly all-true storytelling series.

For February 7, 2015 we bring you Good Date, Bad Date — stories of hooking up, making matches and umm… failing to. Do. So. Expect stories of romantic evenings and… the opposite. And sometimes not knowing which you’re getting. We’re also open to dates of all kind — get in touch if you’ve got one to share.

Featuring stories from:
Yarn’s Jeff Gandell
Claire Grady-Smith
Leigh Kinch-Pedrosa
Inga Knoth

Confabulation presents: Tell the Family

Ladies and Gentlemen.

Once upon a Confab event,
Rules were laid out and rarely bent.
No notes, no props, no gimmicks, or tricks
(Though occasionally a few rule breakers are allowed in the mix.)
Stories must be told, and they must be true,
Above all, they should have happened to you.

But upon our annual holiday show,
We hear that story that happened to your bro.
Or that grandparent caught in war,
Whose experiences shaped your very core.
Our stories are still shared, but so too the tales of our relative,
Passed down the tree, if not one that we did live.

We’ve had great tales of ocean travel,
And Jewish Christmases, and psychic Dads, and other babble.
The stories remain true as can be told,
But with our parents stories, we may now be bold.
The goal is the same — share who we are,
But with fewer prescriptions, they may go far,
To explore not just who you grew up to be,
But how we are shaped — by choice, by act, and by family.

Submissions now open for Confabulation presents: Tell the Family.

Stories can be your own, or those you inherit.
