‘Bloody brilliant’ Time Out
‘Storytelling genius’ Brighton Fringe
When you unwrap a city, you have to unwrap it all the way down…
Born & raised in London, the Crick Crack Club has pioneered the capital’s performance storytelling scene for over 30 years. Enter their wild haven of fairytale, myth and epic, and delve into the underground city, the city of shadows, the hidden city, the city of dreams and the city of the dead.
Storyteller Ben Haggarty, and musician Jonah Brody, become guides to the dark places of the underground… In this subterranean city of dreams hear the awe filled tale of Dionysus – born once from his mother and again from Zeus; wonder at the tragic tale of Orpheus who could only experience love through separation, and despair at the selfishness of the Sky Gods who bestow the chaos through which we must wade to find sense.
