Mezrab in the house | Amateur

A night of stories & music

English spoken >>

It’s amateur night at Mezrab! There is no greater pleasure for an audience than to see another human being struggle with a new medium, and discover his or her strength, or fail in a way that shows the human underneath. And that’s what tonight’s about!

We’ll be bringing you some of Mezrab’s favourite professional storytellers, and also give the stage to new storytellers. Always wanted to tell a story? This is your chance to be inspired by other storytellers and throw your name in the hat. Or support the brave souls who come to tell their spontaneous 5 minute stories.

Stories by: Soula Notos and your host Christina Mercken (aka Storytrooper).
Music by: Iris Rijnsewijn

The rest of the line-up will be revealed soon!

What is Mezrab?
Imagine stepping into a living room where you feel instantly welcome. You take some soup, grab a drink and before you know it you are part of a ritual that has been taking place for thousands of years around the world: the sharing of food, music and stories. This is Mezrab. And Mezrab is coming to Groningen for the third time with their programme ‘Mezrab in the House’!

We are eager to see local storytellers and musicians fill the ‘Mezrab in the House’ stage. So if you want to tell, sing or play on our next nights, let us know!
