About Oswego, New York
"Feathers of Fire: A Persian Epic"
A cinematic shadow play for all ages created by Hamid Rahmanian, a 2014 Guggenheim fellowship-winning filmmaker/visual artist. The play unfolds an action-packed magical tale of star-crossed lovers from the 10th-century Persian epic Shahnameh ("The Book of Kings"). Rahmanian’s graphics, derived from the visual tradition of the region, are rendered as puppets, costumes, masks, scenography and digital animation, all of which will come to life in a “live animation” shadow casting technique perfected by shadow master Larry Reed on a cinema-size screen. Includes an original score by the acclaimed musical team Loga Ramin Torkian and Azam Ali. $20 ($5 for students). Parking is included in the cost of the ticket. tickets.oswego.edu or 315-312-2141.
