Folklore in ‘Golden Pumpkin’

An actor-puppet show ‘Golden Pumpkin’, directed by Mohammad Aalami is underway at Entezami Theatre Hall.
A legendary Iranian tale, the show is about an old couple who are childless. Therefore, the woman adopts a pumpkin.
It indirectly portrays physical disabilities that might be seen as impediments in daily routines for the physically challenged, but the reality is that a good number of disabled people do a lot better than healthy people, Mehr News Agency reported.
The pumpkin in the story represents a baby girl, questioning some presumptions and prejudgments about the disabled, said Aalami.
Iranian folklore and old songs are recreated and performed live on the stage. “The entire story unravels on a wooden cart, which according to the different situations, turns into a table or house,” he added.  
The show is not directed at children only but addresses all age groups. Folklores are mostly welcomed by young adults and families in general.
Forouzan Bahrampour, Salman Farkhondeh, Mohammad Loqmanian, Ali Etesamifar, Mina Ramezani and Hamed Zahmatkesh are the cast.
The performance will run through January 1, 2016 at the theatre at Iranian Artists Forum, south of Art Garden, North Mousavi St., Taleqani Ave., Tehran.
