The only comedy club in Utrecht is trying something new and is hosting some nights of storytelling in English in the cosy basement of the Kargadoor (Oudegracht 36, Utrecht). Storytelling has been enjoying a full blown revival the last few years in the Netherlands. And rightly so! We’re all full of stories and who doesn’t like to listen to a good one? Funny, sad, scary and sweet: that’s what Storytelling in the Basement is all about.
So on Monday October 21 and Thursday November 28 come and listen to experienced storytellers and talented newcomers from all over the world tell their tales. And if inspiration strikes, audience-members are invited to put their name in a hat. At the end of the night two names will be picked at random and will get to share their story. True stories about crazy families, horrible dates, myths, folk tales, newly written stories: anything goes as long as the stories are told and not read from paper.
Host of the show is Soula Notos, a longtime member of the Comedyhuis. Soula regularly tells stories at Mezrab in Amsterdam (where storytelling nights draw 300 people every week), and travels around international festivals all across Europe with her solo show “Who are you when no one is looking?” which brought her to Oslo, Prague, London, Amsterdam and Vilnius.
Dates: Monday 21st of October and Thursday 28th of November. More dates to be announced.
Time: 20.30 – 22.30 hour
Location: Basement, De Kargadoor (Oudegracht 36, Utrecht)
Tickets: 8,50 euro (incl. fee)
