Nick Hennessey - Where the Bear Sleeps

Friday 30th June - 9:30pm


(Traditional Performance Storytelling - 60 mins)

Suitable for ages 14+

Nick Hennessey, winner of the Finnish epic-singing award, delivers us into the deep, snow-filled forests of the Finnish far North, where the river of the underworld flows dark and fast, and the summer sun shines just a little too bright.

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, magical battles and transformations.

Nick Hennessey is widely acknowledged as one of the UKs leading contemporary storytellers. He was commissioned by BBC Radio 4 to create a one-hour documentary about Kalevala in 2010. He has performed at Londons South Bank Centre and the Royal Albert Hall and extensively at folk, storytelling, and literature festivals throughout the UK and internationally. He has published three solo albums and received critical acclaim with airtime plays on BBC Radio 3.


He's a man with a harp - what's not to like?


This show will be held in the Crick Crack Club's Fabularium.
