The second temporary exhibition of TOPIC this 2016, which runs until March 2017, is dedicated to an Iranian puppet company, Yase Tamam, whose soul, director, writer, artist, and creator is Zahra Sabri.

This exhibition aims to show the beauty of a country like Iran through their puppets, and the excellent work of the puppet company “Yase-e-Tamam”, created in 1990, which has traveled the world achieving numerous successes and awards with its diff erent shows, such as the fi rst prize at the Puppet Theatre Festival in Prague in 2009 or the mention of honor at the 10th edition of the International Festival of Puppet Theater and Animation Movies for Adults in Warsaw for their creativity in the staging of the puppet show Count to One.

In Tolosa we had the good fortune to enjoy the art of Zahra because in 2011 she presented at TOPIC her show The Earth and the Universe, which magic and poetry captivated those who came to see it. Later, generously, she made and donated TOPIC a set of traditional string puppets of Iran, which completed and was part of the exhibition Routes of Pulcinella, one of the most traveler exhibitions of our Centre.

Zahra has worked for almost seventeen years as director, stage designer, and puppet designer and maker. In the exhibition we will see puppets from the Iranian traditional puppet show called Kheimeh Shab Bazi, whose main hero is called Mobarak, but also puppets from other contemporary six show of her: Eight Moments, eight short stories written by eight unknown writers from all over the world; Tooti Par, the story of “The Parrot and Merchant” by the renowned Iranian poet Molana (Rumi); The House of Bernarda Alba by Federico Garcia Lorca; The Earth and the Universe also by Molana; Count to One, an excerpt from the poem by Khayyam, an Iranian poet of XI and XII century; and Mother Courage and Her Children, her latest show.
