Tell is an event in which people are invited to come and share food, and tell and be told stories by an invited group story tellers, and add their own as well.

 

It is an event interested in the transient communal identity created through the ritual act of story telling, in which stories might tell stories, which tell stories, which tell stories. Tell derives not (I hope) out of a nostalgia for the warmth of premodern traditions, but as an exploration of oral storytelling as a specific mode of communication, one capable of scrambling different timelines and realisms in order to suggest new relations and escape routes, within a sight of comfort and common. Tell is interested in narratives as active cultural objects and pushing towards a machinic understanding of oral story telling, where within the live testing sight created by the collection of listeners, narratives might link histories, theories, fictions and the personal into viscous assemblages with undetermined trajectories, infecting and informing reality if we let them.
