The Arabian Nights: Night 9

Casa Árabe headquarters (at Calle Samuel de los Santos Gener, 9). 8:00 p.m. Free entry until the event’s capacity is reached.
In Spanish.

Storyteller Héctor Urién is coming back to Casa Árabe’s headquarters in Cordoba this September, with some of the tales from this literature classic. On this occasion, the common thread between the selected stories will be the presence of 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 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 stories from The Arabian Nights related with that word. On Wednesday, September 23 (Night 9), the main word will be “women.”
