The Crick Crack Club - London's finest, and the UK's premier, programmer and promoter of performance storytelling - will once again fill Bargehouse with a Festival of Fairytales for Grown-ups.
Expect unbowlderish fairytales, through Norwegian tricksters, Finnish creation myths, irritable goddesses, wild twins riding goats and Baba Yaga to Beezlebub getting a mythic makeover and Morgana jousting across giant chessboards...audiences are invited to launch themselves into the uncharted waters of their imaginations in the hands of some truly great masters of their craft.
And that's not all, Bargehouse is a big building just crying out to be explored and this is a cross arts festival, so Crick Crack Club have taken care to find art, photography, installations, film and music to fit the theme. Trolls, angels and magicians may lurk around every corner; the Christmas carols will be provided by Transglobal Underground's TUUP and Sheema Mukherjee; there are promises of wolves on the fourth floor; a labyrinth (with a twist) in the attic; and a shrine to all gods awaiting supplicants...The sideways looking drawing salon, Art Macabre will be in residence and London Bridge's storytelling club Tailspin will move in for a week to provide additional narrative oddities.
