'Flight No. 745' takes off for Germany

'Flight No. 745' takes off for Germany

An Iranian puppet show titled 'Flight No. 745', directed by Marjan Pourgholam Hossein, will begin its theatrical tour of three German cities.

The performance of 60 puppets will first be staged in Kulturzentrum GOROD in Munich on November 7, IRNA reported.

Theater der Ding festival will host the second and third performance of the puppeteers in Berlin on November 12 and 13.

The fourth performance of 'Flight No. 745' will be in Prinz-Regent-Theater, Bochum on November 15.

Earlier, 'Flight No. 745' went on stage in the Netherlands and Brussels and was recognized as the best war show at Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival Groningen in the Dutch city of Groningen.

Poetic reconstruction of memories lost after years, a woman has returned to Iran to sell her parental home. She fled the country as a child during the war with Iraq. Returning to the home of her early youth, she cautiously attempts to reconstruct memories she thought she had lost.

Iranian Puppet Theater has found a special way to represent the reconstruction. Using beautifully crafted maquettes and tiny puppets filmed by the performers, 'Flight 745' brings the war-tinged memories of the protagonist to life in a poetical manner.

All the characters, buildings and settings are based on real life.

'Flight No. 745' was awarded at Iran's prestigious Fajr International Film Festival for its creative approach to Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988).

The play was staged at Tehran's City Theater Hall last year.
