Start the Car, the Brooklyn-based multimedia storytelling series, brings its first show to Indianapolis at the Harrison Center for the Arts gymnasium, 1505 N. Delaware St., during the Indianapolis First Friday event on Jan. 3. Stories begin at 7 p.m. and the event is free to attend.
Start the Car is a rotating lineup of local storytellers that offer non-fiction and fictionalized stories based around a loose theme. The theme for this event is “comebacks.” Artists are encouraged to use sound, video, images, collaboration with other artists, and any other modes to creatively enhance the narrative. This will be the fourth installment of the series, and the first in Indianapolis.
The show producer, Asa Gauen, is originally from Noblesville and is the co-creator of Personal Desire Propaganda and contributor to This Red Door. Abbie Reese, author of Dedicated to God: An Oral History of Cloistered Nuns will be both performing in the event and also signing books beginning at 6:30 p.m. Other contributing artists include Noblesville’s Kelli Yates (The Polk Street Review) and David Stilley.
