The Crick Crack Club presents I Know Not - an afternoon of Sufi storytelling 


The British Museum,
Great Russell Street,



Show Details

Myths retold is a series of performances of some of the greatest stories in the world, presented in collaboration with the Crick Crack Club. Enter a flickering cave of wonder for a wild exploration of epic and myth.


Why do dervishes whirl? Why is the mule so fond of the camel? Some questions have been asked forever, and most are asking something else entirely.


In a performance laced with subversion, rebellion, comedy, poetry, and philosophy, the acclaimed Egyptian performer, Chirine El Ansary, takes an unexpected journey into the bizarre and beautiful Sufi realm.


Simultaneously ancient and contemporary, this is a performance full of mystics, forgotten faiths, fairy tales and inklings.
