The Remarkable Tale of Robert Desnos, Cube Cinema, Bristol

December 14, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm UTC+0

by Clare Murphy & Daniel Morden

Surrealist, Poet, Prisoner, Storyteller…

Held captive in a concentration camp, a group of prisoners tell fantastical tales in clandestine gatherings to escape the terror of their situation. Surely their fate is unavoidable…?

Funny, tragic, uplifting, moving — and true — The Remarkable Tale of Robert Desnos shifts between the horrific reality of the camps, and the beauty and richness of countless other worlds. Daniel Morden and Clare Murphy tell tales that ask ‘is our fate set?’ Or is there no fate but that which we make? This is an extraordinary exploration of resilience and the power of the imagination to shape and affect reality.

DANIEL MORDEN is one of Europe’s most popular storytellers. He has been telling tales for a living since 1989. He is best known for his duo performances of Greek myth with Hugh Lupton, and his dynamic fusion of spoken word and music with The Devil’s Violin.

To experience Daniel Morden in full flight is an amazing thing. IAN MACMILLAN
