WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Feathers of Fire: A Persian Epic is a visually breathtaking cinematic shadow play for all ages. Inspired by the 10th-century Persian epic Shahnameh ("the book of kings"), this action-packed tale follows star-crossed lovers Zaul and Rudabeh, who triumph at the end against all odds. Hamid Rahmanian's graphics, derived from the visual tradition of the region, are rendered as puppets, costumes, masks, scenography, and digital animation, all of which come to life in a "live animation" on a cinema-size screen.
Note: This show is suitable for ages five and up.
