BBC Persian Coverage of Feathers of Fire: https://youtu.be/e-tZ47an3Ik

A visually breathtaking cinematic shadow play for ALL AGES, this action-packed performance stages the magical tale of Zaul and Rudabeh, star-crossed lovers from the 10th-century Persian epic Shahnameh. The largest shadow puppet play ever performed, Feathers of Fire features over 140 colorful shadow puppets, performers in elaborate masks and costumes, and digitally animated backgrounds, seamlessly choreographed together and projected onto a cinemascope-size screen to give the audience a feeling of “live animation.” Conceived, designed, and directed by visual artist and 2014 Guggenheim Fellow Hamid Rahmanian in collaboration with Larry Reed and ShadowLight Productions, the show has played to sold-out audiences in New York and San Francisco, will entertain children and adults alike. Running time: 70 minutes, in English.
