Property Summary
FAILURE:LAB is a raw and intimate evening showcasing personal stories of failure. With a refreshing vibe of openness, it helps pave the way for change by crushing the isolation and stigma around failure. FAILURE:LAB empowers audience members to persevere by exploring the space between people who fail and quit, and those who get back up again. By talking about failure, the audience can begin a dialogue about how the local community can help foster success. Failure then takes its rightful place as the crucial first step to the next big thing. Embrace it, learn from it, build on it.

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.
