Join us for The Moth's inaugural Mainstage in Nevada! The Moth is an acclaimed literary organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. The Moth has presented more than 17,000 stories, told live and without notes, by people from all walks of life to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. Renowned on National Public Radio, The Moth hits the road to come to Nevada for the first time at the 2017 Gathering, getting back in touch with its rural roots. A dance between documentary and theater, storytelling and performance, everyday people and entertainment, The Moth brings personal stories to the mainstage in this, its flagship program. The show features five carefully selected storytellers who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors. Past shows have featured stories by an astronaut, a pickpocket, a hot-dog eating champion and hundreds more. Join us in welcoming The Moth to Elko and take part in this exciting opportunity to share the storytelling arts with this national literary powerhouse. For more information, visit www.themoth.org.
