Join us for an afternoon of comical tales from Russia and the Middle East presented with lots of physical comedy and audience participation. Simple Ivan (Russian) - The famous Russian “noodlehead” who learns the importance of reading and learning about the world before venturing out into it. Performed in mime set to music with participants from the audience to complete the cast.
The Bridge and the Dream (Middle Eastern) - The tale of the man who dreams of buried treasure and seeks it in distant places is popular in several Middle Eastern countries, and even found its way into The Arabian Nights. Along the way the treasure seeker encounters a dancing genie, a salesman hawking pyramids and a bumbling policeman who tells of his own dream before he returns home empty handed to his wife… or is he?
