Coming Up Next At StoryNight
Wed 14th June 2017
THE PONGO'S DREAM
told by Sef Townsend,
music by Iñigo Mikeilez Barrade
Just back from touring Chile and Argentina, Sef returns to StoryNight with tales from that 'other', often overlooked, América... from deserts & mountains, from vast plains, and from islands at the end of the earth.
These are the stories of the people who disappeared from the land, the secret stories of those who survived, and of those now inhabiting all corners of this remarkable world.
With the captivating rhythms of Tango, Cueca and Chamamé from Iñigo Mikeilez Barrade on button accordion.
Storytelling and music - Que hermoso!
One of StoryNight's favourite tellers
'All Sef's stories are heart-felt and meticulously researched. His performances are at times finely nuanced and at others wild affairs of joyful singing and arm-waving. Love it!' Nell Phoenix
Venue: 99 Torriano Ave NW5 2RX (nearest tube Kentish Town)
Doors open 7.30pm / Stories start 8pm

For Little Red at Bedtime Stories at 40 Winks imalondoner wrote:
'The old oral tradition of storytelling has somewhat faded out, but in these dimly lit walls glows. Tonight’s narrator is Nell Phoenix, who transports her captive listeners around the globe with her retelling of fairytales and the fallen females they speak of. Captivating'.
Without stories we would go mad. Stories can conquer fear, you know. They make the heart larger.
Thou shalt not is soon forgotten but once upon a time lasts forever.
