Sweet and spicy stories flavoured with living sound, set in strange worlds, that yet seem strangely close. The activity of storytelling occurs all over the world, sitting round a fire, relaxing on piles of cushions. Telling tales is an essential part of every culture, and a way of bringing the voices of our ancestors into the future.
