thanks for the message. There seems to be a new wave of edge storytelling here in Ireland with new young groups popping up. I don't know if it exactly fits your bill but check out the narrative arts club in dublin, http://www.narrativeartsclub.com/, also check out Chaos Thaoighaire (pronounced Chaos Theory) http://chaosthaoghaire.com/
Also as Bruce suggested, The Moth in NYC, though it is slam so maybe different to what you are looking for.
Also you sent it as an email to everyone in Applied storytelling, I would suggest you start a discussion, that way you can get a conversation going. You can post a general discussion on the main page or post it in a specific group.
Saw your question about adults sharing tales. I haven't come across anyplace to learn about this type of storytelling, but I did find a great source of it. Have you heard the podcasts from The Moth? It's a series that apparently tapes live adult storytelling in different cities, based around various themes. I found it on iTunes.
