“Confabulation is one of Montreal’s most unique and exciting literary series” Jeanette Kelly, CBC Radio
As heard on CBC’s WireTap
Confabulation, Montreal’s premiere all-true storytelling event, presents Firsts: Stories of beginnings, re-beginnings, and taking it from the top! at Dream Builder Studios (2107 Second Street W, Cornwall) on Saturday April 11th at 8pm.
For the first time, Confabulation brings its wildly popular monthly showcase to Cornwall. Confabulation is a unique storytelling event in Montreal featuring honest accounts, told without notes, props, or gimmicks. The show is inspired by The Moth, and millennia of oral tradition history, and hopes to encourage the practice and art of storytelling in this contemporary world.
Confabulation is hosted by its creator Matt Goldberg, best known for being one sixth of the Montreal-based award-winning sketch comedy troupe Uncalled For. Confabulation is co-produced by the No More Radio – Montreal’s first podcast network and will partner with local community theatre companies Vagabond Theatre and SVTC for this special presentation.
Everyone has a story! Inspired by Cornwall’s diverse cultural scene, Confabulation will take to the road for the first time bringing three seasoned Montreal storytellers to the show – Leigh Kinch-Pedrosa, Paul Aflalo, and Cornwall native Cassandra Togneri, – who will be joined by three first-time local storytellers- Jean Leger, Cornwall real-estate agent, community theatre veteran, and family man; Jenny Dagenais, Cornwall native, hairdresser and make up artist, and Michael Togneri, retired air traffic control instructor, hobby sailor, and father. Enjoy interpretations on the theme of firsts with stories about near-death experiences, culture shock, homecomings, a Korean wedding, and more.
Come see this growing event in its first iteration for Cornwall audiences on Saturday April 11th at 8pm at the Dream Builder Studios in Cornwall. Tickets are $10.
