In addition to hosting monthly live sessions in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, Tales of Whatever has been invited to make special shows, talks and workshops for a wide range of UK organisations and venues, including Latitude festival (nice mentions for that one in the Guardian and Exeunt magazine), Cornerhouse cinema and galleries (as part ofVogue Fashions’ Night Out), and The Albany theatre London, as well as contributing to several national radio shows and podcasts.
Live events place first-timers alongside more seasoned performers to share experience-based true stories, told without notes for a public audience. Speakers to date have come from as far afield as Buenos Aires, Gauteng, Salford and New York City to share experiences of being shipwrecked, serving coffee, spending Christmas on an island compound, finding a dead body, missing an important train, being wrongly diagnosed with something awful, being rightly diagnosed with something awful, vacuuming up a family pet, marrying a pantomime horse, and solving a 1970s domestic haunting with basic chemistry.
Founded and presented by writer-performer Mark Powell and now in its third year, Manchester-based storytelling organisation Tales of Whatever plans, produces and records regular live showcases, workshops and special site-specific events.
