Hear Now Festival

Hear Now Festival | Road Tripping | Scoop.it

"All the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players." From ancient times until today, people have loved nothing more than to listen to a well-told story, a tall tale, a good yarn. Indeed, the sprit of the bards of old is still thriving. To celebrate this spirit, the National Audio Theatre Festivals proudly presents HEAR Now!

HEAR Now is the audio equivalent of a film festival for contemporary audio story-telling in all its forms: live and scripted solo performances, multi-voiced, classic radio drama, experimental narrative, and much more. This four-day Festival will offer a multi-faceted program showcasing the many forms of audio fiction and sound art storytelling in theaters and other “listening” venues. The Festival will present audio fiction programs that exemplify traditions of craftsmanship, as well as aesthetic and technological innovation. 

The 2013 HEAR Now Festival will be a gathering place where the work of master storytellers is celebrated and shared. In addition, the Festival will expose its audiences to recent developments in audio preservation by showcasing newly restored and archived award-winning audio dramas. The Festival will offer live and recorded programming at local theaters and other venues in Kansas City. HEAR Now will also offer moderated discussions and panels for conversations and the exchange of new ideas -- an immersive experience in all aspects of the art and craft of audio fiction and sound art story-telling.

Audio drama, audiobooks, recorded, and live story-telling -- sketches, poetry, spoken word -- alongside academic papers, juried competitions, and presentations on the physics of sound, as well as performance workshops, will round out this intensive listening event for the 2013 Hear Now Festival.

We invite you to come and share your stories, your tales, your yarns.  All the world’s a stage, and next June 2013, the main stage is in Kansas City, MO!
