BUDDHA BABIES

Performance storytelling by XANTHE GRESHAM KNIGHT

Mixing up Greek myth, ritual, grown-up fairytale, a touch of the down-right-rude, and lots of mythic baby making, Xanthe Gresham deals with the biggies: life, death... and a touch of cookery!

To achieve Tantric re-birth, take 1lb of unconventional birth stories from anywhere (China, India, Greece – whatever is fresh and available); marinate with sprinklings of Taoist, Confucianist, Shamanic, Platonic and Vedic philosophy; add zest & a pinch of salt.

Mix it up. Serve it out. The resulting baby shower of stories will bring joy in life and hope in death, and it may just blow your mind.

'A truly great storyteller' British Theatre Review

Directed by Kathy Hammad

XANTHE GRESHAM is a storyteller with a distinctive, physical, performance style, who delights in the absurd and preposterous. Alongside performances in theatres and art centres, she works as a storyteller for Holland Park and The Chelsea Physic Garden and lectures on Storytelling Drama at the University of East London. Xanthe has performed in Festivals, schools and libraries in the UK, Ireland, France, Slovenia, Holland, Switzerland and New Zealand.
