    Professional storyteller Héctor Urién is taking his show “Alf Leila wa leila: The Arabian Nights: Night 1” to Casa Árabe’s headquarters in Cordoba.
    The Arabian Nights are like a long-lasting kiss that stretches on to keep from dying. To avoid being killed, Scheherazade tells a different story each night, leaving it without an ending until the next night. Professional storyteller Héctor Urién is taking this same narrative proposal to Cordoba, where the stories will gradually be given form through his voice, presence and gestures. And so he will continue to do one night after the next, with his magic, his eroticism, his laughter and his mysteriousness. A different tale will be told each night, and this is the first...

    Casa Árabe is thereby joining this original, exciting project, in which women take on a notable role in the world of the arts. Through the on-stage storytelling by Héctor Urién, Scheherazade’s role as a orator will be brought back, and the role of many women appearing in The Arabian Nights will be highlighted.

    Online ticket sales will end on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. As of that time, those tickets which have not been sold may be purchased at Casa Árabe’s headquarters in Cordoba (from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.) at the price of 5 euros.

    Héctor Urién (Madrid, 1977), a professional oral storyteller, is staging this innovative, original show based on the structure of Scheherazade’s story. As a professional storyteller, he performs his art and stage work at theaters in Spain and Latin America. Drawn by his curiosity and 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 stories, he has taken part in several national and international festivals and co-directs the yearly festival “Ávila de cuento.” In 2015, the publishing firm Palabras del Candil published his essay “La narración fractal: arte y ciencia de la oralidad” (“Fractal Narration: Art and science in orality”), in which he presents an innovative, surprising perspective of storytelling, with a foundation based on chaos theory and fractal geometry.

    Fourth 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 (known as 1001 Nights in Arabic) are like a long-lasting kiss that stretches on to avoid 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 contemporary sensitivity, and nothing but his voice, his presence and his speech, Urién uses the art of a Baghdad souk storyteller to transport us to a cave with a genie, and from the islands in the Indian Ocean to the domains of a serpent queen.

    At each session, Héctor Urién uses a word as a common thread. It plays the role of an “Open Sesame” to tell us the tales from the Arabian Nights associated with that word in his lively voice. On October 30 (Night 4), the word will be “loves.”

    As part of its fall film series, Casa Árabe is showing this documentary, directed by Hind Benchekroun and Sami Mermer, in Madrid (Canada, Morocco, Turkey, 2016, 89 min.).
    Istanbul, a city striding the space between Europe and Asia, has always been a place where merchants and travelers from around the world pass through. Today it represents the gateway for entry into Europe’s promise land for immigrants from Africa and the Middle East. Refugees from Syria and Iraq, cosmopolitan youths in search of a better future after losing hope during the Arab Springs, clandestine travelers from Sub-Saharan Africa, all meet up in a small space full of life: “callshops,” the small centers where they are able to make contact with their countries of origin.
