Action Fiction! - Stories Performed #5


Action Fiction! - Stories Performed

With the continued success of this series, we've secured a date for our return to Chez Poulet. So come join us at the fifth event of a new live performance series, where local actors perform original short fiction by the best local writers – turning literature into performance!


When and Where?Thursday, January 17th, 7-9pm.

Chez Poulet, 3359 Cesar Chavez Street @ Mission (

We always start on time. This event is free of charge.

Facebook event: Action Fiction! #5


But why?

Let's admit it: great writers are not always great performers. Great writing should be as passionate and engaging when read publicly as it is on the page. Readings should feel like war and love happening in front of you, not a museum exhibit. The Omnibucket Performance Academy believes that by providing compelling performances of original voices in extraordinary settings will create an aesthetic experience unlike any currently offered in San Francisco.

So come join us for our return to this unique arts space in the Mission. For years the Chez Poulet has been a home of underground events in San Francisco, and the local home for a range of traveling artists from around the world.  A converted warehouse that hosts epic parties, gallery exhibitions, live events ranging from concerts to puppet shows, and even a radio station, it is a center of innovative performance.

    How does one become a featured writer?

      You would simply need to submit a piece of fiction that is about 8-10 mins read out loud. You can email that to me through this meetup by going to my profile.
