Dublin Community Center starts storytelling series


Published: 9/13/2023 3:09:17 PM

Starting Sept. 20, and continuing on the third Wednesday of every month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Dublin Community Center, 1123 Main St., will be hosting the Monadnock Storytelling & Spoken Word Circle, an open mic of sorts for people to come share stories, poetry, rap, comedy and any kind of spoken word.

The organizers for this monthly event are Sebastian Lockwood and Papa Joe Gaudet, both of whom have 20-plus years of experience as professional storytellers. Gaudet has peformed for more than 10,000 audiences, from Cow Head, Newfoundland, to Austin, Texas, and from the beaches in Florida to the mountains of Washington. 

Storyteller and podcaster Sebastian Lockwood tells the great epics: Gilgamesh, Odysseus, Caesar, Beowulf and Monkey. His studies in classics and anthropology at Boston University and Cambridge University laid the foundation for bringing these tales into performance. Lockwood has tutored and taught classes in higher education for 25 years and launched two storytelling podcasts in 2022 -- “Blowing Up Stumps- tales from New and Old England” with Maine storyteller Matt Gile and “Monkey- the Journey to the West.”  

Coffee, tea and snacks will be available, and participants are also invited to bring their own drinks.
