A blacksmith batters himself with his hammer.

A fisherman throws back the fish he catches.

A blind man begs passers-by to strike him.

Shot through with powerful, mysterious images, Daniel Morden delves deep into lesser-known stories from the Arab world, some moving, some shocking, some bizarre, some ridiculous…. all of them strange.




No stranger to Crick -Crack Club audiences, Daniel is one of the UK’s most popular storytellers. He has the timing of a comedian and the insight of a poet. Daniel is best known for his work with the Devil’s Violin Company, and adaptations of Classical Greek mythology with Hugh Lupton. He has written books for both adults & children.
