Fugitive Stories at Kickstand Cafe, Arlington

  • Kickstand Cafe 594 Massachusetts Avenue Arlington, MA, 02476 United States (map)

Fugitive Stories continues its special brand of non-competitive storytelling at Kickstand Cafe in Arlington. We bring Moth and Massmouth winners, along with others from the local community, to share their stories. Do you want to tell your story on our theme? Sign up Kickstand or fill out our form online. We'll get back to you to let you know if you're in. We also invite audience members who are interested in telling a five- to six-minute story on our theme to drop their name in a hat. If chosen, they’ll tell their tale.

February’s Theme: “Almost”

Featured Tellers

Janelle Codianni
Janelle is a writer, performer, story coach, and the owner of High Maintenance, her handy-woman business. She co-produces Harpy, a storytelling show in Somerville that features the voices of women and femmes. When she isn’t doing these things, she’s remodeling her vintage camper, powerlifting, or attempting to casually talk to her two daughters about consent.

Kemp Harris
Kemp is a storyteller, composer, musician, children’s author, and actor. He has performed as a storyteller at festivals, schools, and libraries across the country. As a musician and composer, Kemp has shared the stage with Taj Mahal, Gil Scott-Heron, and Koko Taylor. He has written and performed original compositions for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and WGBH public television. Kemp has been a featured storyteller featured at WGBH and, in 2016, brought his children’s “Stories on The Wind” to Fugitive Productions. As a 30-year educator of kindergartners and first-graders in Newton, his stories sometimes include lively vignettes of daily life with mischievous and innocent faces.

Peter Carcia
A former Divisional VP at Polaroid Corp., Peter now teaches storytelling at UMass Boston. Peter is a founder of Reading Neighbors Network, an organization that works to keep elders (50 and over) in their homes and works to increase their activities outside of their home.
