Golden Thread Fairytale Players Present
by Torange Yeghiazarian
This visually colorful performance with dynamic story-telling, dance and music is adapted from several folk tales centered around the comedic personage, Mulla Nasrudin or Nasrudin Hoja, a wise fool renowned in Central Asia, Turkey and Iran. We follow Nasrudin’s adventures as he travels through caravansaries in Konya, Damascus and Isfahan before he arrives at his destination on the ancient Silk Route. Nasrudin’s clever wisdom and propensity for exposing hypocracy, frequently get him into trouble.
Will Nasrudin and his faithful donkey ever make it to Samarkand, the center of arts and crafts on the ancient Silk Road? There is only one way to find out!
Golden Thread Fairytale Players offer a dynamic repertoire of performances for young audiences, with plays based on traditions and folklore from across the Middle East.
