Gilgamesh: A Story Concert
Storyteller-musician Iwan Kushka is back by popular demand with his mesmerising version of the oldest story in the world - the epic of Gilgamesh.
Written in ancient Mesopotamia in the second millennium BC, Gilgamesh is extraordinarily modern in its emotional power as it sends a message through the ages. It tells us how the mighty King Gilgamesh struck by grief and the fear of death crossed the vast ocean, sailed to the rising sun, journeyed to the edge of the world in search of eternal life, and found Utnapishtim, the man who survived the Great Flood and was made immortal.
Prepare for a poetic flight of truly epic proportions, interwoven with an original musical score by Becky Doe (viola), William Benzies (guitar) and James Watts (flutes).
Gilgamesh: A Story Concert premiered in Bristol at Storytelling Sunday (Hamilton House) in December and the completely SOLD OUT - extra seats had to be brought in for what was an electric night that was rapturously received, so please book tickets well in advance as this will surely be a big hit once again. This time, the show plays the enchanting and atmospheric St. Paul's Crypt in Southville. The performance will be followed by music & celebrations for the opening night of Storyfest 2017. It will be a special night indeed!
Doors open 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Snacks and drinks available. Running Time: 90mins
