TEMPORADA DE CUENTOS EN LONDRES
2 - 7 Feb VIKING MYTHS
Two formidable storytellers will lead you through the wildly imaginative landscape of Norse creation myths. Norwegian Heidi Dahlsveen, and Ben Haggarty from Britain, wander through an overwhelming world of wolves, giants and axe blades. They’ll tell bitterly comedic stories of wise and foolish Gods, the treacherous trickster Loki, and our ancestors - those poor, bewildered humans. Discover how the primal adventures of the Gods, along with the dark planet Saturn, the Sun and the Moon, have left their mark on our everyday lives.
9 -14 Feb GREEK MYTHS
Whether it’s Athena versus Poseidon, Aphrodite versus Ares, or Demeter versus Hades, the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus are always fighting. Flinging words like firebrands, performance storyteller, Xanthe Gresham will take you into a world where the sun, sea, earth and underworld are nothing but a playground for these fast-dancing, wine-drinking, olive-eating deities.
16 - 21 Feb IRISH MYTHS
One brave scealaí (myth-teller) will lure you into the fantastical world of Ancient Ireland. Clare Muireann Murphy brings you on this dark and ferocious journey where warriors leap with blinding frenzy, one-eyed monsters hunt the shores, and shape-shifters blur the line between this world and the ever-so-close otherworld. Learn how fairies came from fallen gods, how broken promises can change the fate of a nation, and how great battles shaped the very earth itself.
