Keep Me Awake – A Storytelling Shuttle Service
On buses, commuters overshare to lighten their load. In taxis, strangers let details of their day out of their mouths like fireflies: in bright, short bursts. On airplanes, passengers confide their fears, shining light into the darkness.
On long road trips, the night driver asks a favour: “Tell me a story to keep me awake.” Peg City Car Co-op presents Keep Me Awake – A Storytelling Shuttle Service: a storyteller will travel with the patrons, sharing a ride, and a story, to transport the body and the mind in two directions at once.
Keep Me Awake storytellers/ drivers will drive between Nuit Blanche Winnipeg’s three main zones, Downtown, the Exchange District and St. Boniface.
(Storytellers/ drivers have the right to refuse services to persons/people under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Storytellers/ drivers DO NOT drive to personal or business addresses.)
PICK UP & DROP OFF: TBD
Keep Me Awake is an Illuminate The Night Open Call Project funded by Winnipeg Arts Council.
