Storytelling has become one of the most popular, compelling, intimate and transformative forms of performance art in recent years. Due to the popularity of organizations like the New York City-based non profit group The Moth, personal stories and storytelling as an art form are experiencing a resurgence in popularity as a valuable part of our culture.
