Q&A with Danny Harris: tales of failed romances just in time for Valentine's Day
Q: Tell me little bit about yourself.
A: About two years ago I started a blog called People’s District, which aims to share stories about people who live across various corners of DC; It shares the life and stories of real Washington residents. Through the site I became interested in storytelling both as a process for collecting oral history and as a tool for bring people together.
Q: Give us an overview of The Anecdote event happening on February 7, 2012.
A: The Anecdote is an opportunity to take some of those stories that I have collected and to share them on an unexpected, non-tradition stage with audiences in the comfortable, home-like space of a furniture store.
Q: What would you like people to get out of the event?
A: Given the location, guests are meant to feel at home, literally to sit on couches, lay in beds, and to gather around tables. The event is a play on Valentine’s Day. Guests can get comfortable while our storytellers regale them with stories of failed love bad sex, and no love all.
Q: Are you going to recount any of your own personal dating mishaps at the event?
A: I am. I could not ask others to do it if I was not going to do the same.
Q: What’s next for People’s District DC?
A: We will continue to have story telling nights in unique and interesting spaces as an opportunity to bring people together and share experiences.
