2nd Story performs 3-4 events per month all over the fine city of Chicago (and beyond!) Though the format of the performance will vary from venue to venue (sometimes we do three stories, sometimes four, or five, or two; sometimes we have live music, sometimes we work with a DJ or sound designer), the timbre is always the same. Since our goal is to get people talking and telling their own stories, there’s always space and time for our audience to connect to each other. Click on the left menu bar to see all our upcoming shows. Our very next performance is listed below.

Our Next Performance

Betwixt, Between, and Beyond: Stories of Becoming

Guess what? You are not the same person at 17 as you are at 72. Over our lifespan, we literally go through dozens of internal and external metamorphoses. Who we are today is not who we are forever. Join us for a night of stories that explore the fluidity of identities and the ways we continue becoming ourselves throughout our lives.

Curated by Aimy Tien and Amanda Delheimer Dimond. Directed by Lexi Saunders. Sound Design by Billy Eline.
