Marionettes (Puppet Show) and Nhar W Layl (Day and Night)
There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned puppet show and these evening shows combine two in one. Supported by the French Cultural Mission in Lebanon and the Beirut Municipality, the first is an exciting puppet show, the second uses shadow play and story telling with puppets. The shows are created by Dar Onboz and Collectif Kahraba. There was a bird on the tree (6pm and 7pm), Seven and 7 (8pm and 9pm).
