Want to tell a story or read a piece of writing? The Bodega Bruise Storytelling Show wants you!

A revival of The Bodega Monthly at Bodega Wine Bar, now called The Bodega Bruise Storytelling Show! because The Bodega acquired a liquor license, so you might get on a bicycle and fall right off again, hence the bruises, and the bar’s name has changed to Idlewild – however the cool crowd, bartenders and cooks, and inclusive vibe are all the same!

The Bodega Bruise takes place every Second Sunday at Idlewild: 24 St. Nicholas Ave, Bushwick Brooklyn at 8pm. Please call/text me directly if we know each other or email: bodegabruise@gmail.com to get on the next line up. 5-7 minutes, anything performative/literary goes except baseless hatred, which will be thrown out (and probably be punched in the face) if it ever sneaks onto the stage.

Also, you don’t have to perform to see the show! Come get bruised with us in this growing community of very funny, poignant, and talented storytellers and short fiction/poetry writers. It’s Literary Madness. Live and Uncut. Noncompetitive and Always Free!

The next show is Sunday, September 10th. Hope to see ya there!

About kelleybrannonprojects

From 2012, new 'About' coming soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this nostalgia from my life five years ago: I am an artist, writer, researcher, filmmaker, photographer, playwright, actor, and director in Ridgewood, Queens. I know that might seem like a lot of things to be so I should say I experiment in a variety of disciplines and mediums; concepts and absurdities. I studied in The Studio for Interrelated Media at Massachusetts College of Art. I moved to the area in June 2010 after graduating. CURRENT PROJECTS: Since moving to NYC I've been feeling pulled back to my first loves: writing and theater; and the surreal, emotional, and abstract. I am also very involved with radical politics and I'm particularly interested in blending internal and external structures. I wrote a semi-surreal one act play called "The Rootless: A Play About America" last year which divulged the madness of capitalism and was performed at The Producer's Club with Love Creek Productions. I recently wrote another one act play called "The Thousand Lives of a Nomad" which is a story about the task, escape, and intrigue of continually making new lives in different places. The story is told through the lens of a 33 year-old woman originally from Finland and now residing in Brooklyn. It's staged to be a "live animation" of sorts and, personally I think it's both funny and thoughtful. On-going projects include a constant evolving series of smoke drawings, a documentary about the business behind social media and Facebook; hope of rekindling my love affair with large format photography, and a perpetual mid-life crisis...
