The Crick Club Presents The Girl in the Dog. Performance storytelling by Jan Blake.

A stranger walks into town,
A forbidden chamber is filled with hair,
A girl seeks refuge in the skin of a dog…

Superlative storyteller, Jan Blake, draws us into the hot, enchanted realm of Caribbean and African fairytale - where rules get bent, taboos are broken, people go astray, and family bonds are tightly tied.

Expect shapeshifting, dark encounters and surreal enchantments, as magic is done and undone to restore balance in a dynamic world of wonder.

JAN BLAKE

Powerful and bold, Jan Blake is the Queen of Afro-Caribbean Storytelling. An outstanding storyteller, she performs in theatres and festivals the length and breadth of Europe. Jan was born in Manchester to Jamaican parents. Inspired by recordings of 'Miss Lou' (Louise Bennett) she came to telling stories in 1986, and rapidly gained an international reputation for witty and exhilarating performances. Specialising in folktales from West Africa, North Africa, the Arab world and the Caribbean, her repertoire is full of tales of powerful women and her versions of Ananse’s exploits are definitive. she was awarded the Thüringe Märchen Preis for devoting her life to this art form.
