Karagoz Theatre Company: “The Forest of the Witch”:Two Shows!

Saturday, January 18th at 11 am and 2 pm:
When Karagoz, the hero of traditional Anatolian shadow plays, cuts the branches from a magical neighborhood tree, he and his friend are transformed into a donkey and goat, learning the importance of nature and protecting the environment along the way. Ayhan Hulagu’s acquaintance with traditional arts started in his high school years. He developed an interest in shadow puppetry and started performing professionally soon after completing a course in shadow plays offered jointly by the Turkish Ministry of arts and culture and International Puppetry Association (UNIMA) in Istanbul, in 2011. He staged a number of shadow plays in various parts of Turkey before bringing his artistic experience to the United States, where he has staged many plays across America.
