OUR STORY from 7:7:7

Once upon a time there was a dragon and he flew far far away. But then the dragon stopped to look for the person who lived behind a really sexy female dragon who was busy eating onions who had an accent and really bad breath but that didn’t stop him. The Dotson came out from his kennel and came out from his kennel and cam. Reared up on his hind legs. A lullaby to his friend.

He sand about the stars, but then he woke up and realized he was a dragon. But then he thanked his mother anyways because he loved her so much. But then he said to himself seize the day. Then he said, that’s so cliché. But that’s okay so he turned around and he saw a giant schnoodle. The schnoodle continued to sing a song to the dragon who breathed flame on him?? HE ATE A WAFFLE!!! And everybody stopped to take a breath. Jk. Lol. (laughter)

He said WOW this is sum good maple surple. But still… Wasn’t there a lady dragon? At this here waffle huis? I have to go find that lady dragon, maybe she’s in the bathroom. I could show off my recipes! But what if she’s lactose intolerant. Should I shave my legs? Scales don’t shave well. But I wax anyway.

7:7:7 a Storytelling Event at BLB (5/13)

"7:7:7" 7 Stories, 7 Minutes, 7 Turning Points: an Unlikely Storytelling Event is only 4 days away! On Sunday, May 13, we’ll be piling into the Bryant Lake Bowl Theater to hear/watch some fantastic storytellers, and we hope you’ll join us. Tickets are going fast, so get yours today!

This event is indoors, so it’s happening regardless of the weather! This would be a way to wind down and have a brew after the outdoor craziness of the May Day parade (we'll have puppets, too!). Bryant Lake Bowl’s excellent food and drinks are available to order form inside the theater, which means you could turn the whole event into a Mother’s Day dinner, complete with entertainment!

Dance by Poetry In Motion
Music by Brian Laidlaw
Live Painting by Zach Koss
Short Story by Casey Peterson
Puppet show by Reed Ellis Aubin performing The Pollen Road
Traditional Storytelling by Beverly Cottman
Improv by Matt Johnson

We all tell stories, every day, as an integral part of our lives, through Facebook status updates, Twitter feeds, conversations, and body language. The Yes!Lets Collective has invited a varied cast of writers, dancers, visual artists, musicians, and (even) puppeteers, to explore how we use sight, sound, and movement to convey the stories that shape our shared experiences.

Please join us this Sunday, May 13 at Bryant Lake Bowl (810 West Lake Street, Minneapolis / 612-825-8949). Tickets are $7-12, pay what you can, and can be purchased in advance online at Doors at 6:30p.m. Show at 7p.m. sharp.
