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.

Our Next Performance

This Frenetic World: Stories of Finding Meaning in the Chaos (at UC)

Since 2006, Sliced Bread has been publishing poetry, prose, photography, cartoons, drawings, and other works of art — “things that make us laugh, make us cry, make us ponder our meandering existence” — from members of the UChicago community. On Wednesday, April 8, join Sliced Bread to celebrate the launch of the spring 2015 issue with live storytelling performances from 2nd Story, Chicago’s premier storytelling series. From a UChicago student’s trip to the motherland on a medical mission, to a lonely college grad’s attempt to meet new people in Grant Park, to a young actress caught in an affair of words with a poet twenty years her senior, hear three stories of seeking connection and meaning in the chaos of this frenetic world.

Curated by Jess Kadish. Directed by Stephanie Chavara. Sound Design by Nick Kawahara.

This is a free event!
