Information:

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.

WHERE THE BEAR SLEEPS - The Kalevala, by NICK HENNESSEY

In 2000 Nick Hennessey entered the world championship of epic-singing in Espoo near Helsinki, performing the Kalevala (the Finnish national epic), to the Finns, in English….and he won!

Tonight Nick delivers us from the red velvet surroundings of the Cube, into the deep, snow-filled forests of the Finnish far North, where the river of the underworld flows dark and fast. In this world created from shards of egg-shell, the sun and moon are fought over, magic is done and undone, and life is shot through with bizarre ordeals, misguided passions, magical battles and transformations.

Expect a remarkable performance of elemental epic.

‘he brings that rare combination of artistic adventure and absolute accessibility…magical’ LONDON LITERATURE FESTIVAL

‘captivating, powerful, perfect' OXFORD CULTURE REVIEW

‘Compelling’ THE TIMES

NICK HENNESSEY is man with a harp - what's not to like? Nick is widely acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading contemporary storytellers. He is the only international entrant to win the Runolaulu singing competition in Espoo (2000) and was commissioned by BBC Radio 4 to create a one-hour documentary about Kalevala in 2010. He has performed at London’s South Bank Centre and the Royal Albert Hall and extensively at folk, storytelling, and literature festivals throughout the UK and internationally (Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Canada and two national tours of Japan). He has published three solo albums, the most recent of which, “A Rare Hunger” released on Harbourtown Records, received critical acclaim with airtime plays on BBC Radio 3. www.nickhennessey.co.uk
