ARAB PUPPET THEATRE
Tripoli located in Northern Lebanon is a city
filled with history. As I walked around the city I was greeted with so many children; as they ran around and filled the streets with laughter and joy. With the Arab puppet Theater foundation goal to revive the puppet theater in the Arab world, why not start with one of the largest cities in Lebanon with the most heritage. In addition, why not start with people from a young age; as this will plant a seed for their love for puppet theater.
Throughout this project I intend to create a space that both children and adults may enjoy by exploring different functions within each space, and be able to go through the process of puppet theater; which will create a greater connection to theater. People will get to volunteer, create puppets, donate material in order to grow a personal connection to puppet theater.
