performance storytelling by Chirine El Ansary

A king betrayed by his wife, decides to wreak his revenge on womankind by bedding, then slaughtering, one virgin every night… but then he meets Sheherazade.

Sheherazade, the storyteller who saved her own life together with the lives of her children by telling stories for a thousand and one nights, is one of the great cultural creations of the Arab world. Stories nestle within stories, with demons, errant spouses, thieves, fools and comedians all jostling for attention.

The fabulous Egyptian storyteller Chirine El Ansary, comes to the Earthouse to tell some of the most intriguing and deliciously seductive episodes from The Nights, stories that explore the deepest passions and desires of men and women.
