Crick Crack Club Performance Storytelling presents

Buddha Babies - The Alternative Cookery Show, by Xanthe Gresham Knight

The Cinema Of The Imagination: Fairytales For Grow Ups

Thu 18 October 2018 // 19:30

Tickets: £8 advance, £10 on the door

Mixing up Greek myth, ritual, grown-up fairytale, a touch of the down-right-rude, and lots of mythic baby making, Xanthe Gresham deals with the biggies: life, death... and a touch of cookery!

To achieve Tantric re-birth, take 1lb of unconventional birth stories from anywhere (China, India, Greece – whatever is fresh and available); marinate with sprinklings of Taoist, Confucianist, Shamanic, Platonic and Vedic philosophy; add zest & a pinch of salt.

Mix it up. Serve it out. The resulting baby shower of stories will bring joy in life and hope in death, and it may just blow your mind.
