TITAS/Dance Unbound presents Hamid Rahmanian's Song of the North, a magical evening of large-scale shadow puppetry that transports the audience into ancient worlds full of color, history and stunning imagery. An inspirational epic from ancient Persia comes to life in this stunning multi-disciplinary performance created through shadow puppetry, projected animation, music, movement, and theater.

483 handmade puppets are used to tell the story of Manijeh, a courageous heroine who uses her strengths and determination to rescue her beloved and help prevent a war. Adapted from the Book of Kings (Shahnameh), a historical and cultural touchstone that is a national treasure in Iran,  Song of the North challenges the art of storytelling. The production is a one-of-a-kind multimedia experience that celebrates culture, collaboration, experimentation, and unity.
