CROW BLOOD SNOW created and told by  Sally Pomme Clayton

‘Black as crow, red as blood, white as snow.

The colours burned, through to the very heart -crow renewercreation, destruction, redemption. ’


Sally Pomme Clayton, and her toy crow , explore hints of Snow White and Crow folklore through fairytales,

forgotten myths, and songs found across the world from Ireland to Japan, Alaska to Scandinavia,

Siberia to Italy.

 

She asks, who is Crow? Crow was there at the beginning, warns of dangers, creates the Universe, plays the fool,

makes you fall in love, urges war, flies over the battlefield, brings the dead back to life, makes peace,

keeps the memories, counts time, waits for doom, and is the matter of the land itself.

Sally Pomme Clayton conjures dark, dangerous, contradictory Crow with tales of birth, death, and transformation.

London’s liveliest storytelling club-night for adults, run by Nell Phoenix.

Professional storytellers headline the evenings at our intimate, candle-lit space. They spellbind us with stories that have been told and re-told for ever - epics, myths, legends, folk and fairytales.

These tellers transport with their tales, they connect in the moment with the space, the story and the audience, creating an intimate and unique experience. At StoryNight, storytelling is a traditional yet wholly contemporary performance art.

StoryNight is at the grassroots of the London storytelling scene. We have a fun and friendly crowd and the best listening ears in the capital!
At StoryNight we encourage well-honed 10-minute tales from the floor. Speak to Nell on arrival.

And it’s only £7 on the door including wine and nibbles. For details about the next StoryNight, see our Diary page.

Take a punt on any of the (other) storytellers Phoenix finds for her Story Night. This really is storytelling for grown-ups at its absolute best - one of London's best-kept secrets.

Without stories we would go mad. Stories can conquer fear, you know. They make the heart larger.

There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories.
