    Third storytelling session for adults at Casa Árabe, given by storyteller Héctor Urién, who will be offering a new tale from this legendary work of literature.
    The Arabian Nights are like a long-lasting kiss that stretches on to keep from dying. And by emulating Scheherazade in Madrid, Héctor Urién, a professional storyteller, will choose a different story each month at Casa Árabe, from the fictional universe created in The Arabian Nights. With a contemporary sensitivity supported only by his voice, presence and discourse, he uses his art as a storyteller to take us on a journey from a Baghdad souk to the cave where a genie lives, from the islands of the Indian Ocean to the domains of the Serpent Queen.

    At each session, Héctor Urién uses a single word as a narrative thread which plays the role of the original “Open Sesame” to tell us in his own voice some of the stores from The Arabian Nights related with that word. On Thursday, December 14, (Night 3), the word will be “hopes.”

    Héctor Urién (Madrid, 1977) is a professional oral storyteller who has brought this innovative, original show to the stage, based on the structure of Scheherazade’s tale. As a professional storyteller, he performs his art and stagecraft at theaters in Spain and Latin America. Drawn by his curiosity and a deeply ingrained scientific streak, Urién has developed his own ongoing storytelling workshop in Madrid, where students and teacher discover the inner workings of stories and the mystery of the oral narrative together. A narrator of short, direct tales, he has taken part in several domestic and foreign festivals, as well as co-directing the annual festival “Ávila de cuento” (“Storybook Avila”). In 2015, he had an essay published by the Palabras del candel publishing firm, with the title: La narración fractal: arte y ciencia de la oralidad (Fractal storytelling: the art and science of oral tradition), in which he presents an innovative, surprising perspective on storytelling, backed by chaos theory and fractal geometry.
  • Burruezo & Nur Camerata en concierto

    December 14, 2017
    Casa Árabe ofrece la actuación "Un sufí en el siglo XXI. Música y palabras de un loco de amor", el jueves 14 de diciembre en Madrid.
    Pedro Burruezo, músico de dilatada trayectoria que se remonta a los años 80, llega a Casa Árabe, acompañado de Wafir S. Gibril (ney, “ûd”, percusiones…) y Maia Kanaan (viola, voz), con un espectáculo intimista pero gigante en emociones.

    “Un sufí del siglo XXI. Música y palabras de un loco de amor” es un concierto y, al mismo tiempo, es también una especie de visita a una zaqüiya sufí contemporánea en la que uno de sus “mûrits” o “aprendices”, Burruezo, el anfitrión, hilvana un discurso en el que la música se convierte en la protagonista, pero el montaje no desdeña pequeños recursos dramáticos con los que el artista, como un trovador sufí de nuestra era, explica y explora en esta vía de hondísimo calado espiritual. Así, músicas, cuentos, poemas sufís… se van entretejiendo sutilmente, aromatizados con las músicas de un al-Ándalus contemporáneo, para embelesar al público con un mensaje de amor y compasión que emborracha nuestros sentidos y nuestro corazón.

    En el aspecto musical, Burruezo y los suyos nos presentarán algunas de las piezas de sus aclamados últimos discos: “Misticísssimus”, “Dervishes & Troubadours”, etc., siempre publicados por Satélite K. Piezas como “Soleá sufí”, “Alhambra Tasawwuf”, “Allahouma”, “La noche”, “Ebrios de amor divino, Al Kauthar”… nos pasearán por recónditos parajes de nuestro pasado y de nuestro futuro, siempre entre la tradición y la vanguardia, entre las raíces y lo contemporáneo, entre Oriente y Occidente.

    Y, por otro lado, en perfecta y simbiótica comunión, Burruezo nos hablará de dónde nacen esas canciones, qué significan, evocará los poemas de Ibn Al Arabi, de Rabi’a Al Adawiyya, de Rumi, nos sumergirá en el sufismo y en su mística más irredenta…

    Pedro Burruezo es también director de la revista The Ecologist y tiene en su haber libros como “Ecología y espiritualidad” donde aboga por volver a ver la Naturaleza como una teofanía. Este montaje se estrenó hace solo unas semanas en Festival Micronesia de Huesca y ya ha pasado por la Fundación 3 Culturas de Sevilla, en ambas ocasiones con éxito de público y de crítica. Wafir S. Gibril y Maia Kanaan, músicos de un más que conocido prestigio, acompañarán a Burruezo en este viaje rumbo a la Belleza.

    Casa Árabe’s final movie screening in 2017, with this Tunisian film by Mohamed Ben Attia.
    Hedi, by Mohamed Ben Attia (Tunisia, Belgium, France, 2016, 93 min.) Fiction

    Hedi is a simple guy: he doesn’t speak much, doesn’t have a strong personality and doesn’t expect much from a life he already has mapped out. Indifferent to everything around him, he accepts things the way they are: he lets his authoritarian, domineering mother organize his marriage with Khedija; he lets his boss send him to the city of Mahdia the week of his wedding, and he lets his older brother Ahmed, who has come back from France to attend the wedding, tell him how he is supposed to behave. In Mahdia he meets Rym, a member of the entertainment staff at a beachside hotel where increasingly fewer tourists are coming to stay. Hedi feels attracted by her carefree spirit and freedom, and the two end up living a passionate adventure. However, the wedding preparations follow their course, and Hedi is forced to make a choice.
