Part of Embracing Complexity

Created by Hamid Rahmanian, a Guggenheim fellowship-winning filmmaker and visual artist, Feathers of Fire is an ambitious shadow play recounting the fates of star-crossed lovers. The magical tale of Zaul and Rudabeh is drawn from the tenth-century Persian epic Shahnameh (The Book of Kings). Casting shadows on a cinema-size screen, puppets, costumes, masks, scenography, and digital animation will bring the story to life. With techniques conceived by shadow master Larry Reed and an original score composed by Niyaz, Feathers of Fire is epic entertainment for the entire family.
