    Jana and Baladoor: A Play in Shadows by Bahram Beyzaie

    In a panorama as majestic as life itself, Iran's foremost playwright and director Bahram Beyzaie brings to the stage a magical combination of poetry and puppets, music and myth.

    In his never-before performed Jana and Baladoor, he recounts the drama of a world dominated by dark demons, and the heroic battles of four mythic siblings. They represent the four elements of air, water, earth and fire and their battles redeem and re-enchant the world. Two of Iran's most accomplished artists, the acclaimed actress, Mojdeh Shamsaie and the musical wonder, Mohsen Namjoo, recite the story, accompanied by music.  Shadow figures bring the narrative to life.

    The play is in Persian with English supertitles.
