Evening of Subversive Storytelling

Storytelling Circle - Wise Tales Replayed: Part of the Nour Festival, an evening of popular tales from the Middle East with a new ring that subverts and surprises. Presented by Alia Alzougbi with mischievous humour, she takes ancient wisdom, chews it up and spews it out as contemporary fables. Among the tales is 'Layla and the Wolf', 'Waseela' and the Arabian Nights tale 'The Lady and her Five Suitors' reset under the Assad regime. This will be followed by a quirky quiz to test your knowledge about the Arab world! Taking place on 29 October, 2014 at the Kensington Central Library, 12 Phillimore Walk, W8 7SA.
