Peter Chand, a renowned storyteller who has told throughout Britain and Europe, specialises in stories from the India subcontinent – his ancestral homeland.
He will be the guest storyteller at Matlock Storytelling Cafe on February 2 and it is expected that his performance will be one of the highlights of their year.
From shape-shifters to cunning seducers, sadistic mother-in-laws to sensual spirits; Peter has brought together a selection of truly dark and disturbing stories from India – several for the first time.
From the young man who descends into sensual madness, to the most shocking of all curses laid down by a holy man, and the young bride who took on the might of the Goddess Kali herself. These tales are as far removed from peace and harmony as you can imagine.
Beware this is a strictly over 18s only performance and not for the easily offended.
As always Matlock Storytelling Cafe is on the first Friday of the month in the Imperial Rooms, Imperial Road, Matlock DE4 3NL. Doors open at 6:45pm when refreshments will be served. if you want alcohol that’s fine but take your own. Admission is £7 and stories begin at 7:30pm.
