Griots (pronounced GREE-ohs) are West African oral storytellers.


GRIOTS is a live storytelling series created by twin sisters--playwright Julie Taiwo Oni and memoirist Jessica Kehinde Ngo--in the vein of The Moth and Shine. For each event, a call for pitches within a certain theme is placed, and then seven storytellers are selected to perform a five-minute non-fictional personal story before an audience.

Please join us!
