Information:

THE FABULARIUM FAIRYTALE FESTIVAL, COLLEGE GREEN, BRISTOL, BS1 www.crickcrackclub.com/fabularium

From demure housewife to bloodthirsty goddess, gurgling infant to elephant man, meditating sage to cosmic fire-eater, Hindu mythology illuminates a mind-blowing world of radical transformations. Kali is one of the wildest shape-shifters of them all. demon-slayer, life-saver, supreme-mother, destruction-dancer, this goddess is truly awesome.

Storyteller, Emily Hennessey, and sitar player extraordinaire, Sheema Mukherjee, take the wheel on a white-knuckled tuc-tuc ride through sun-kissed palaces, fiend-infested forests and every cacophonous, saffron-scented marketplace in-between.

When an evil power spreads across the world, Kali’s time has come…
