Listen to the stories of professional storytellers and talented newcomers! The theme of this edition: queer stories. As part of the Utrecht Queer Culture Festival, which takes place from October 6th to 14th.
Funny, sad, scary, sweet, unbelievable, comforting stories: that's what Soula's Storytelling Nights are all about. Make yourself at home and listen to stories from all over the word!
So come and listen to experienced storytellers and talented newcomers tell their tales. And if inspiration strikes, audience-members are invited to put their name in a hat. At the end of the night two names will be picked at random and these two lucky birds will get to share their story. True stories about crazy families, horrible dates, myths, folk tales, newly written stories: anything goes as long as the stories are told and not read from paper.
Four times a year, Soula Notos hosts this storytelling evening in Theater Kikker. The upcoming editions are on December 19, February 13 and April 16.

Does their best to convey queer stories to make people (even straight people) think and laugh at the same time.
Meysam Kisomi is an actor and theatre maker from Tehran, Iran. He started acting in Iran when he was 15 years of age in theatre and short films. He is currently based in Amsterdam. His migration gave him an unique perspective on the different lives we live, from cultural differences to those related to human rights. Being able to talk about these issues has fuelled his work as a storyteller. Since then, he has moved to theatre making as well, performing at The international Storytelling Festival Amsterdam, The Amsterdam Fringe Festival and Oerol Festival.
Miky Burch is a comedian and writer from Detroit. Her goofy, expressive and vulgar style of comedy will catch your attention and have you laughing your ass off over this twisted existence we call life. She has performed all over Europe, the US and Canada and is the founder of the Cunnilingus Show, a monthly queer comedy game show held at Boom Chicago in Amsterdam. The personal stories she tells are funny, sometimes painful, but always enchanting.
