Anna Darian was 10 years old when she abruptly moved with her mother to America. Some years later, at Odyssey's Forgiveness/Grudges show in September 2016, she told the story of that journey, and of her relationship with the father she left behind. From Anna's Odyssey bio:
Anna Darian is a storyteller in Phoenix. But don’t hold that against her cause she is also a proud Tucsonan and a 3-generation Wildcat! Anna discovered the world of storytelling last year when she stopped by an open mic night and got hooked instantly. Since then, she has taken the stage several times, including one unforgettable night at the Erotic Poetry & Music Festival (what?!?). She’s also shared stories at Moth Story Slams, including a recent win at the New York slam. When she isn’t airing her dirty laundry on stage, Anna loves to dance, travel, go to concerts, and chill with her family in Tucson. To pay the bills, she has a day job supporting community development projects in Phoenix, which she loves equally. For Anna, story is a way of life. She is as nosy as she is an over-sharer. She lives for the euphoria of uncensored honesty, and truly thinks that world peace could be achieved through story. Ok, maybe the last one was a stretch, but seriously, this is a revolution, people, get excited!
This episode was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at The Screening Room in Tucson, AZ, on September 1st, 2016, and was curated by Molly McCloy. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit www.odysseystorytelling.com
