TEHRAN, July 7 (Mehr News Agency) -- A documentary entitled "Iran's Kheimeh Shab-Bazi" has been made narrated by Reza Khamseii, the veteran puppet showman.
It has been produced by The Iran Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Organization (CHTHO) and directed by Afshin Razi.
"After negotiating with the CHTHO, we decided to produce this traditional show with the help of veteran puppeteers," Fariba Reiisi, executive director of the project told ISNA.
"During the film Reza Khamseii, his brother and two puppeteers narrate the process of making the show," she added.
Kheimeh Shab-Bazi is a Persian traditional puppet show which is performed in a small chamber by a musical performer and a person called a morshed. The dialogue takes place between the morshed and the puppets. The methods used in staging the performance distinguish it from other types of puppetry.
