Award winning Iranian artist Hamid Rahmanian teams up with shadow master Larry Reed to bring an ancient Persian epic to the Boston area.

This captivating performance stages the legend of Zaul & Rudabeh, one of the stories in the Persian Shahnameh, the national epic of Iran. Featuring puppets, a storyteller, and shadow casters, this all-ages adventure updates the classic shadow play—a storied cultural form across Asia and the Near East—melding traditional puppeteering techniques with new media.
