Every Saturday evening from October to January the 18th edition of tales for older audiences brings together storytellers from around the world
Since 1977 the Harlem Jazz Club has been hosting Contes i Cuentos (Tales and Stories), a meeting place for fans of the tradition of oral narration. Through the autumn and winter, and even the spring, depending on the year in question, storytellers from around the world have gathered to delight those in attendance with magical evenings set around this ancestral art form.
The 18th edition of the festival opened this year with Colombian Alekos and will continue on Saturday the 25th of October with Jordina Biosca’s El dit a la llaga (Lit: touching a sore spot), in which she will present a series of humorous tales in an effort to placate the anxieties of contemporary society with a touch of light-heartedness.
During the months of November, December, January, the Harlem Jazz Club will play host to the likes of Mexico’s Martha Escudero, Venezuelan Isabela Méndez, Japan’s Yoshi Hioki, Guatemalan Pep Bruno and Germany’s Mónika Klose, among others.
The Contes i Cuentos sessions will take place on Saturdays at 8.30 pm and will be held in Catalan or Spanish, depending on the evening. Tickets are priced at 6 euros, though four-session tickets are available for 15 euros. For more information, please consult the Contes i Cuentos website.
