 VENUE: Soho Theatre Upstairs, Dean Street, London W1D 3NE  AUDIENCE: Adults - strictly 18+

 DESCRIPTION:  (Soho Storytelling Season no.24)
Dust off your heart, dance with the devil, kiss in the dark... But make sure you know who you’re kissing.

Peppered with tableau images from the tiniest Pollockesque shadow theatre, Sally Pomme Clayton tells gothic grown-up fairytales. Stories of lust, loss, madness & mistakes – strange liaisons of the celestial kind, sexual encounters probably best avoided, and the wild Russian goddess Baba Yaga herself.

Ready yourself an hour of dark enchantment, complete with a good nip of something to keep the cold out, and the hot in...

 DATE: Monday 3rd April 2017, 8pm (running time 70 mins)  EVENT TITLE: Myths unleashed - Atalanta  LOCATION: London  ARTISTS: Ben Haggarty

 VENUE: Soho Theatre Upstairs, Dean Street, London W1D 3NE  AUDIENCE: Adults (14+)

 DESCRIPTION:  (Soho Storytelling Season no.24)
A girl raised by a bear, Centaurs intent on rape, maniacal kings, troublesome boars and bitterly feuding deities contrive the bloodiest race to ever stain the soil of Arcady.

Audaciously reshuffling epic Greek Mythology, Ben Haggarty brings to the stage a fierce tale of a remarkable virgin hunter and devotee of Artemis who sure as hell doesn’t want to have anything to do with men.

Here the veneers of classical civilisation are stripped away and the truly awesome implications of the tales are made, sometimes unbearably, clear. Spend a moonlit night in the company of wild women, cocksure warriors and gods unleashed.

 DATE: Monday 8th May 2017, 8pm (running time 60 mins)  EVENT TITLE: Fairytales for Grown-ups - Uncaged  LOCATION: London  ARTISTS: Michael Harvey

 VENUE: Soho Theatre Upstairs, Dean Street, London W1D 3NE  AUDIENCE: Adults (14+)

 DESCRIPTION:  (Soho Storytelling Season no.24)
A wild man in a cage is holding the exact thing you’ve been looking for, and you don’t have the key...

In a charm-your-socks-off performance, Michael Harvey brings us a story of uncaged wonder and transformation, complete with cross-dressing, a huge hairy man, attempted seduction, and a plot that twists and turns.

This story comes from a place where everyday life and the fantastic collide – somewhere simultaneously earthy, ethereal and real. Michael unearths a Breton version of a famous Grimms fairytale which will blow your mind. Hang on to your hats – this one’s a corker!

 DATE: Monday 5th June 2017, 8pm (running time 70 mins)  EVENT TITLE: The Frog Princess Punked  LOCATION: London  ARTISTS: Sally Pomme Clayton, with music by Georgia Kalogeropoulou & Dawn Rose, images by Fotios Begklis

 VENUE: Soho Theatre Upstairs, Dean Street, London W1D 3NE  AUDIENCE: Adults (14+)

 DESCRIPTION:  (Soho Storytelling Season no.24)
Crazed Russian fairytale meets punk rock. Ivan is forced to marry a frog. Baba Yaga meets Koschey the Deathless. And the patriarchy is challenged...

Pioneering storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton and an all-girl band weld the noise of punk with a surreal narrative about the perils of annexing the wild, and the wisdom of letting the women loose. Together they create a cacophony of spoken word, song and distortion, amidst a scratch collage of images. It’s gonna be angry. It’s gonna be loud!
