The Gods and Monsters Show

Take a trip to the underworld…

 

Presented by Crick Crack Club
by Pandvani108
Performance storytelling by Ben Haggarty, Emily Hennessey & Mikael Obérg

Music by Sheema Mukherjee & Jonah Brody

 

Take a trip to the underworld…

Walk into the fire…

And don’t look back….

The stage is set for a high voltage mythological mash-up!

Combining performance storytelling, music and song, Pandvani108 turn on the epic jukebox to bring us a wild night of unbowdlerised global myth and epic, in untamed short form style. Gods, monsters, giants, warriors & divas from Greece, Ireland, the Scandinavian North, the Indian heat and far beyond, are all hauled centre stage.

Far from sedate spoken word, this is a brash & exuberant cinema of the imagination, inspired by a 3,000 year old epic singing tradition and with more deities than you can shake a stick at. Encounter the Short Myth Massive – live and irresistibly direct!
