ScandalNights Autumn Season...
ScandalNights is a monthly event at the gorgeous Tom Thumb Theatrefeaturing some of the UK's top professional performance storytellers. Prepare to be spellbound, moved, inspired and 'wowed' as you travel the world from the comfort of your seat.
We feature a new storyteller every month. These storytellers tour nationally and internationally. They perform at venues such as the Barbican and the Soho Theatre and at storytelling festivals across the world. They really are hot stuff.
We're also dedicated to showing off new talent and experimental work. You may experience dazzling collaborations between storytellers and musicians. You may hear words you didn't know existed. You may hear words that actually don't exist. You may even see someone take their clothes off, all in the name of storytelling of course. Anything could happen. One thing is certain. It's almost impossible to not have a great night!
Friday 14th October 'Fairy Tales for Fearless Adults' told by Nell Phoenix Live acoustic music from Hot Feet
'Fairy Tales for Fearless Adults'told by Nell Phoenix
Tales of the romantic and the forlorn, the comic and the grave; these are the stories told of the 'other' folk who steal in and out of our world, and stamp small imprints in our heads and in our hearts. These are also the stories of the heroes and heroines, shy, sassy, sexy or bewildered, who take a risk and cross the threshold between the known and unknowable!
" Stories live in your blood and bones... and light candles on the darkest nights".
Nell's storytelling work this year includes commissions for the October Gallery, Arts for Human Rights, NTS Radio, WWF and Radley Handbags! Nell works as a full-time teller and is a passionate promoter of storytelling as a contemporary performance art. She is artistic director and host of StoryNight at Torriano and at The Emporium Pudding Club, N. London’s most vibrant storytelling clubs for adults. She also tells in hundreds of schools to thousands of children.
"Nell tells with wit, humour, intelligence and theatrical skill“ Xanthe Gresham "That storyteller is awesome” Lorena Munoz-Alonso, cool audience member “the chilli-chocolate of the storytelling world” Debs Newbold, Globe Teller, EDFSS Creative Associate “The storyteller is a dream!” Federica Bardelli, NTS Radio
Music from Hot Feet
Hailing from the long grass and hilly fields of Stroud in Gloucestershire, Marianne and Jack from Hot Feet draw together an eclectic mix of musical influences from Delta blues, to 60's folk, to Psychedelic, to Gypsy Jazz, creating a unique fusion that has been described as 'elegant and enchanting', 'beautifully haunting' and that they call 'Folk, Blues, Roots'n'Roll'.
