The Moth Radio Hour airs on more than 470 radio stations around the world, reaching more than one-million listeners every week – and reaching North Dakota listeners on Prairie Public on Sundays at 2 p.m. Now, fans of the radio show can experience The Moth live at a Fargo Theatre event.
The Moth Mainstage performances are curated events featuring five tellers who develop and shape their stories with our directors. Beyond theater, The Moth Mainstage is a community where entertainment and enlightenment merge.
The Moth is true stories, told live and without notes. The Moth celebrates the ability of stories to honor both diversity and commonality of human experience, and to satisfy a vital human need for connection. It seeks to present recognized storytellers among established and emerging performers and artists and to encourage storytelling among communities whose stories often go unheard.
The Moth began on a back porch in small-town Georgia in 1997, where founder-poet and best-selling novelist George Dawes Green would spend sultry summer evenings swapping spellbinding tales with a small circle of friends. There was a hole in the screen, which let in moths that were attracted to the light, and the group started calling themselves “The Moths.” Since its founding, The Moth has presented more than 15,000 stories told live to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.
