This is a really cool and special part of this show: The John Henry will be on premises! The project is a mash-up: Twitter meets antique wooden moveable type. This year, John Henry will make Back Fence PDX: Russian Roulette one of its stops. Creating real-time onsite prints of choice words and sentences from storytellers. John Henry filters conversations to find the connective tissue in Portland events.
More about Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE…
How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 8 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the wheel to decide the prompt for their story. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part…each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.
At the end of the night, the audience will select a winner who will receive 50 bucks and some other cool prizes, like bragging rights for life. The winner will be invited to come back to the next show! And one lucky audience member will also win some prizes!
