1001 nights cast


Marina Warner, Performance #206

"I'm honoured and excited to announce that the well-known mythographer and novelist, Marina Warner, has written an enchanting story for tonight's performance #206 of 1001 nights cast. The prompt today is: 'at night through a gap'. Marina has spun a tale within her own tale - a tale heard at night, under a full moon that effects all around her and encourages a traveller to tell of her flight from war in the Middle East.

Marina is based in London, where I first met her in 1995. She has written and lectured extensively on myths and fairytales through titles including Fantastic Metamorphoses, Other Worlds : Ways of Telling the Self (Vintage 2004); From the Beast to the Blonde (Chatto & Windus 1994); Monuments and Maidens (Picador 1987) and in 2003 the introduction to the Folio Society edition of The 1001 Nights..."
