Sheherazade and the City of Storytellers
BENEATH THE CANOPY OF 1001 NIGHTS

A maze created out of a 1001 canopies is the extraordinar setting of this production by Thetre Anu. Two different concepts can be explored here:
In the daytime you can try to find the City of Storytellers. Over 5000 kilometres you follow the voyage of young Yunus through the Arabian peninsula up to the City of Storytellers.
As soon as the sun has set, the city then  awakens and opens its gates to festive lighting. Through narrow passages a seemingly endless array of alleys unravel, with magic vaults, enticing sculptures and bizarre inhabitants. In this legendary City the most noted and well practiced disciples of Sheherazade, who through storytelling wish to bring peace to the world.

With Sheherazade Theatre Anu wish to direct a more differencíated view, than the predominant picture of war and terror, onto the Arab way of life – an important signal in a world where prejudice is evermore present when talking about the culture of the Near East.
