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

Sometimes what you see is not what you get…

Transmogrifying humans; old ladies with animalistic tendencies, feral lovers, protective mothers, Loogaroos with sly eyes – this is a night of transformations.

With unsurpassed style & alarming charisma, The Unorthodox Unprecedented Preacher TUUP, and the mistress of Afro-Caribbean storytelling Jan Blake, pick their way through an untamed landscape in the company of those who can become other – in mind, in body, and in spirit.

‘the Crick Crack Club is something special!’ A YOUNGER THEATRE
‘some of the most skilful storytelling I’ve ever seen’ EVERYTHING THEATRE

JAN BLAKE is the Queen of Afro-Caribbean Storytelling. An outstanding storyteller, she performs in theatres and festivals the length and breadth of the globe, with a reputation for witty and exhilarating performances. Specialising in folktales from West Africa, North Africa, the Arab world and the Caribbean, her repertoire is full of tales of powerful women and her versions of Anansi’s exploits are definitive. In 2011 Jan was awarded the Thüringe Märchen Preis for devoting her life to this art form.

TUUP is The Unorthodox, Unprecedented Preacher. Born in Guyana and raised in west London, his style is one of total improvisation, unbounded charisma and alarming spontaneity. His fabulous capacity for mimicry and ear for a wild story is outstanding. As if that wasn’t enough, he’s also the creative lyricist and vocalist of the highly influential dance music collective, Transglobal Underground.
