Casa Árabe’s headquarters in Madrid is hosting the eighth session of this
oral storytelling show for grown-ups, with stories about “women.”
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 from the fictional universe created in The Arabian Nights each month at Casa Árabe. 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 some of the stories from The Arabian Nights related with that word in his own voice. On Saturday, April 21 (Night 9), the word will be “women".
