Confabulation Victoria Presents: Formation

January 18 @ 6:30 pm

Confabulation Victoria Presents:
Formation: Stories of grand plans, breakthroughs, and things going up in smoke.
Thursday, January 18th
Doors 6:30 PM Show: 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Advance and Door: $20
All ages
A night of all-true stories told by the people who lived them. Co-hosts Carol-Lynne Michaels and Cassandra Togneri will introduce you to six storytellers inspired by the theme “Formation.” Each will share a personal story from their life, live on stage, without any notes, props or gimmicks. You might hear stories about families coming together (or falling apart), or partners navigating hiccups to launch their business. Or stories about learning to walk, run or dance. Or perhaps a behind-the-scenes look at a newsworthy discovery. What happens in the lab, stays in the lab… or does it? Come find out on January 18th!
Storytellers will be announced soon! Check Confabulation’s Facebook page for updates: facebook.com/ConfabStories

Accessibility at the VEC is an ongoing project, and we continue to work to make the space more accessible to all kinds of folks. There are also a lot of different barriers to accessibility that have been identified, that we continue to work on. As part of this process, we ask guests: If you are able to do so, use the Broad Street stair entrance and multi-user washroom. There is only one accessible entrance and washroom, help make sure those who need it can use it. Do not move tables or chairs without venue permission. Keep aisles clear at all times and please return your glassware to the bar.

We may, in some situations, have to ask intoxicated people to leave our venue due to circumstances that put the safety of others at risk. We will not do this lightly, or without significant reason.
