Storytelling – Step Carefully in the Forest

Storytelling for older kids! (And adults too). Matthew Crampton and pianist Olga Jegunova bring two mighty tales for a dark winter afternoon – the Greek myth of Diana and Actaeon and the Russian epic The Flaming Firebird and the Princess Vasilisa. This is a new form of storytelling – while Matthew spins the stories, Olga improvises with Ravel, Glass, Beethoven and more. Join them for a remarkable delve into the dangers, and opportunities, of the woods.

When: 12 Jan; 3pm
Where: Kings Place, 90 York Way, N1 9AG
Age guidance: 12+
Cost: £12.50
