The Dancing Fox: Wisdom Tales of the Middle East (2014)


 For 2014 we are taking a fresh look at the show we first produced in 2003, THE DANCING FOX: Wisdom Tales of the Middle East. The material is gathered from the shared folk traditions of Jews and Arabs, including the writings of Sufi mystics, along with fables and folklore of the region. In these tales we encounter some clever foxes, dim-witted fish, a vengeful snake and other colorful creatures, as well as a number of wise and foolish humans. New perspectives emerge from the comic twists and tragic turns of their adventures. A variety of masks, puppets and giant figures will be used to flesh out the particular realm of each tale.
