UNDER EMBARGO UNTIL 22 January 2018 14:00

The Bread & Roses Theatre will present “Demons and Dreamers” during National Storytelling week on Monday, January 29, 2018, bringing people together to celebrate humanity’s oldest art form.

Acclaimed storyteller Dawn Ellis is expected to mesmerize audiences with exhilarating performances that will ignite dynamic proses and reflections aimed to elevate and empower women.

“Storytelling renaissance is happening right now, particularly with stories embracing women empowerment. We’re talking non-digital, immediate, face to face, adult and edgy. It’s no wonder these performances will tickle your funny bone, send shivers up your spine, and then warm your heart up all over again,” said Dawn Ellis.

For eighteen years, National Storytelling week has captivated the hearts of many with music and intimate stories of resistance, culture, and traditions in venues throughout North and South London.

Other featured storytellers at The Bread & Roses Theatre include Danny Scheinmann, Lucy Lill and musicians Tom Morley and Beatrice Leadbetter. The performance will start at 7:30 pm at The Bread & Roses Theatre at 68 Clapham Manor Street, Clapham SW4 6D2, London.

About Instant Teamwork

Tom Morley, of Scritti Politti and Instant Teamwork fame, invented Black Tie White Lie. One could say it was customer led, with Tom being the main customer. Unable to stay up ALL night partying any more, but missing those irreverent sunrise searches for decent coffee, he invited a bunch of his most intelligent and adventurous pals to join him for some morning exercise. Not so much health and fitness but more filth and hipness.

Back in 20011 those friends were older folk who still yearned for their rock’n’roll days (especially parents) but in 2017, through connecting with drum sessions at Morning Gloryville, some of their morning ravers are jumping on board. These millennials are used to getting up to rave at 5:30am so for them the 10am start time is a luxury, as one said at the last event, “It’s so great to have a lie-in and STILL be able to party!”.
