price: Headfirst Tickets


The legendary Crick Crack Club brings its wild haven of fairytale, myth and epic to the Cube. Here the finest performance storytellers create a bold cinema of the imagination for thinkers, dreamers and seekers.

Performance Storytelling by TUUP

A king carries the corpse of a hanged man across a cemetery at night – but the corpse is not dead, it is possessed by a storytelling vampire, whose enigmatic puzzles threaten to burst the King’s head into a thousand pieces…

With customary charismatic style, performance storyteller TUUP takes to the stage with sitar virtuoso Sheema Mukherjee to tell transglobalised versions of this stunning 11th Century Indian epic fairytale.

Enter a place of metaphor, magic and ritual, where love is always confusing; death and fire are inextricably linked; fruit is never just fruit, and the soul might conquer evil, if only it can keep quiet...

TUUP: is The Unorthodox, Unprecedented Preacher… Born in Guyana and raised in Acton, 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. . TUUP has performed throughout the UK, Europe, Central Asia, Asia and North and South America.

SHEEMA MUKHERJEE: Sheema absorbed North Indian classical music and the western tradition side-by-side, studying sitar and Indian classical music under the tutelage of her uncle, the late Pandit Nikhil Banerjee and then with the late Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. Brought up between Britain and India, she has a rich background to draw on in her own compositions and collaborations. Today she is an established sitar player and composer; a regular in Transglobal Underground playing sitar and electric bass; a key member in The Imagined Village project; a formidable collaborator with internationally renowned artists from many genres, including Courtney Pine, Sir John Tavenor, Martin Carthy, Bobby Mcferrin, Boris Grebenshikov, Natacha Atlas, Noel Gallagher & Cornershop, Mercan Dede, the Bulgarian Folk singer Yanka Rupkina.
