Moth and Butterfly


Moth and Butterfly is a storytelling/arts collective, that incorporates Improvisation, true stories, fictional and traditional folk tales. We also run a yearly festival with tellers and audiences from all over the world taking part.
At our monthly 'flagship' night in Galway, stories are a combination of the 'CREW' of storytellers, invited guests and some contributions from our audience/listeners. We are one of Galway's most treasured arts nights, and we aim to showcase and nurture many different types of storytelling, both in Ireland and beyond.
