Yunus, the narrator
An adventure listening journey in the story labyrinth. Day installation.
During the day, the canopy labyrinth offers a unique story trail for the whole family. Visitors accompany the boy Yunus, who sets out to become a great storyteller. Starting in Andalusia, he sets out to find the mysterious "City of Storytellers".
The adventurous story becomes an "audio journey", interactive play activities, large painted canvases and lovingly designed installations bring it to life in the labyrinth. Those who want to can read and re-read it in their personal YUNUS book. The small booklet is designed along the way and enriched with Yunus pictures, letters and city stamps.
With SHEHERAZADE, Theater ANU creates a theatre installation that offers a different view of Arab culture - an important signal in a world in which the images of terror and war are becoming increasingly dominant.
