We are all story tellers. Stories have the power to bring people together and create communities. theVOM is a regular story slam series that is open to anyone to participate, and also features community slams and storytelling workshops.
The vomitorium comes from the Latin word vomo meaning "to spew forth". The vomitorium was a passage way in ancient Roman coliseums and amphitheaters that allowed rapid egress for large audiences. In modern theaters, the vom refers to the hallway passage that runs underneath an audience and to the stage, a journey from a dark space to the illumination of the stage light. In this transition, from dark to light, we often find our greatest stories.
Anyone can participate! Each performance will feature stories based on a different theme. Our rotating panel of judges will choose the best story tellers who will be invited to participate in the Grand Story Slam at the end of the year!
