Performance storytelling with Tim Ralphs, Nell Phoenix and TUUP

Across the globe, between worlds, and into the land of the dead, the path of the cat knows no boundaries. 

In a night of grown-up fairytales, myth, and folktale, three Crick Crack Club storytellers delve deep into the inscrutable, sharp-clawed, comedic, nine-lived, metamorphosing, regularly reincarnated world of Felix Catus and other more feral felines. 

Nell Phoenix balances beautifully the comedic, the magical, and occasionally the downright rude, through an utterly engaging storytelling style. She is Artistic Director of StoryNight at Torriano, one of London’s thriving performance storytelling clubs for adults.

Teller-in-residence of the Word Smack Cabaret and host of Sheffield’s The Story Forge, Tim Ralphs' performances merge the contemporary with the ancient with enviable integrity. His work draws on our international narrative inheritance, the ever-changing cityscape of his home, fairytale, myth, legend and downright surrealism.

Born in Guyana and raised in Acton, Godfrey Duncan – TUUP – is The Unorthodox, Unprecedented Preacher with an improvisionational style, a fabulous capacity for mimicry and an ear for a wild story. He is also creative lyricist, poet, percussionist and vocalist with the highly influential dance music collective Transglobal Underground.

For ages 14+.
