When you tell stories, the desert blossoms

Volkshaus Basel

This event is NOT in-house! Volkshaus Basel, Rebgasse 12-14, 4058 Basel

Finally, we have the chance to meet and hear the unmistakeable master-storyteller Rafik Schami live. His new novel tells of how Karam, a coffee-house storyteller, learns of the deep melancholy afflicting a princess and tries to heal her with stories. Every evening in the palace he gathers the most gifted storytellers to tell the most beautiful stories to bring the young woman back to life. A homage to storytelling.

In cooperation with the Kulturhaus Bider & Tanner and the Volkshaus Basel
