Shadow show in Kuwait is a good tradition!

June 16,2018

After successful winter tour we were invited to give shadow show in Kuwait once again.

From June 16 to 18, 2018, performances were held on a huge cultural center – The Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Center, informally it is known as Kuwait Opera House. These three days were presented to three shows at different times: 14.00,16.30 and 19.00.

 The program was called “Rainbow of tales” and included shadow interpretations of famous fairy tales such as “Hercules”, “Alice in Wonderland”, “Frozen” and others, as well as several productions that are interesting for adults: a number on the eco-theme “Save the Earth”, the most popular “Titanic” and the staging-journey “Around the World”. Organizers and artists were happy to have sold-out all three days. Although the Arab public is rather restrained and educated, applause sounded after every shadow performance. And traditionally the youngest viewers always react very vividly to the light show with LED-lights. These dates were chosen because in Muslim countries there was an end of Ramadan and three days passed the holiday of Uraza-Bairam. That is why the actors of the shadow theater “Verba” finished every show, making in shadow “Eid Mubarak, Kuwait”.
