The Moth and Butterfly sessions are a mixture of storytelling and improv that take place once a month up the stairs in The Townhouse Bar, Spanish Parade, Galway. The crew of four who run the show mix themed true stories with high energy improv and tellings from the audience.
Stories are supposed to last approximately seven minutes and a little bell is used to keep the pace going. (Though I should say, having told a story myself, that the little bell is not at all intimidating, it’s a fun way of keeping you focused.)
All the stories from the crew and audience where wonderful, but the highlight of the evening for me was the improve sessions, including one in Irish and English. The crew are to be applauded for their innovative, energetic and above all welcoming contribution to Ireland’s great storytelling tradition.
