popularising the literature of ancient Iraq through the art of oral storytelling


Book a storyteller

ZIPANG storytellers have performed at private parties, story­telling clubs, Oxford, Cambridge and London universities, the October Gallery, the Hayward Gallery, the British Museum, the Ashmolean Museum, the Story Museum, the Poetry Café in Covent Garden, the Reel Iraq Festival in Shoreditch, the Battersea Barge on the River Thames, and a forest storytelling festival in Morocco.

You can book a Zipang storyteller for your event, be it private or public, small or big, for children or for adults, in English or in Arabic. There is a Zipang performance for every occasion. They range from a three-minute Babylonian spell to a two-hour multimedia telling of The Epic of Gilgamesh. For more information, email bookings@zipang.org.uk
