The Shahnameh - Crick Crack Club Performance Storytelling: Xanthe Gresham, arash moradi
Aerial artiste of the spoken word, Xanthe Gresham, dives headlong into the wild mythology of Persia, to perform sections of The Shahnameh - the epic masterpiece The Book of Kings - accompanied by the remarkable Iranian musician Arash Moradi.
Magical horses, epic heroes, and consuming passions abound in this world of romance, lust, tragedy and war. Here fathers and sons may be strangers in battle; selfish Kings move others like chess pieces across the board for their own amusement; beauty can be both a gift and a curse, and femme fatales condemn young men to journey through fire.
Xanthe is resident storyteller at The British Museum and has been working as a storyteller for several years in theatres, arts centres, parks, schools and libraries.
Traditional stories are her springboard into lands of enchantment where goddesses and heroes take centre stage.
'...fascinating and enchanting...' (The Daily Telegraph).
