Zahhak: The Legend of the Serpent King
A shadow puppet show

This summer, Two Chairs partnered with Good Shepherds Services in Brooklyn NY to bring the tales of Shahnameh to undeserved communities.  We performed the tale Zahhak The Legend of the Serpent King for summer camping 8 and 9 year olds, then gave them the tools to create their own shadow puppets.
