FAILURE:LAB features a diverse group of six storytellers and six performers in a fluid 90 minute format. Each storyteller shares a personal failure in under nine minutes. No talk of lessons learned or who’s to blame – just the intimate story of what went wrong. After each narrative there is 90 seconds of silence for the audience to internalize and reflect on what the story means to them. A four-minute performance follows to clear the air and recharge the room. Audience members are encouraged to share their thoughts on Twitter using #failurelab during the performance. An after party promotes more engagement and conversation.
