Event website

Join Dafa Puppet Theatre’s Husam Abed for a discussion on the company’s approach to adapting biographical information into performance.

Dafa Puppet Theatre views theatre as a public practice, a way for members of a community to express and address issues and concerns that face their community.

DPT co-founder Husam Abed invites members of the community to find inspiration in their stories and gives them the techniques and tools to express them through puppetry. Theatre then becomes not about entertainment only, but a way of self-expression and the glue that binds the community together.

Recommended for artists of all disciplines interested in tapping into biographical source materials
