About the Show
SPUN: True Stories Told in the Territory is a live storytelling event showcasing some of the extraordinary people and their stories that make up the Northern Territory. Popping up at different venues around Darwin every three months, SPUN brings people from all walks of life together to share stories under a theme.
This Darwin Festival event sees SPUN bring you hidden stories told by people you might not ordinarily meet. From prison cells, skyscrapers and bush camps comes a line-up of locals who will have you giggling, gasping and gripping the edge of your seat. To mark the 25th anniversary of the Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Commission, SPUN shines a light on stories inspired by power. Who has it? Who doesn’t? And what does it take to get it back?
True stories told live are incredibly powerful. They have the potential to move, confront and inspire us, reframing the way we see ourselves, and others. At a time when we’re bombarded by social media and manufactured narratives, SPUN offers a refreshingly candid snapshot of life in the Territory.
