The Gift by Arab Puppet Theatre Foundation

  • Crucible Studio 55 Norfolk Street Sheffield, England, S1 1DA United Kingdom (map)

World renowned puppet theatre company, Arab Puppet Theatre Foundation return to Migration Matters Festival to present new show 'The Gift'

In his sumptuous palace, the Abbasid Caliph Harun Al-Rashid hosts emissaries sent by Emperor Charlemagne. As the foreign dignitaries prepare for their long journey back home, the Caliph offers an array of lavish gifts to be sent along, including an albino elephant, known as Abou Al-Abbas. Had the Caliph heard of the German proverb ‘small gifts preserve friendships’?

The Gift is a Shadow puppetry performance featuring traditional classical Arabic, Persian, Iraqi, Egyptian, and Indian music.
