About :

Based on Orhan Pamuk’s novel
Presented by Papiertheatre, France
Directed by Alain Lecucq
Trained at John and Lyndie Wright’s Little Angel Theatre of London, Alain Lecucq established shadow theatre company, La Citrouille, with Annie Bizeau in the 1970s. He was also attracted to paper theatre and began collecting reproductions and original sheets of paper theatre. He also adapted these ‘historic’ theatres to contemporary stage productions, keeping its important characteristics, cardboard and flat form

My Name Is Red about which Orhan Pamuk says “it’s my most colorful and optimistic novel”, covers nine snowy days of Istanbul in 1591. When Şeküre, a beautiful lady with ceaselessly fighting two sons, decides to look for a new husband, a new lover in place of her husband who didn’t come back from the war since four years, she watches secretly from where she hides the palace muralists her father invites by one by. The proficient muralists coming to their house are painting dangerous figures which convey European influences under the supervision of her father for a secret book, with the order of Ottoman Sultan. When one of them gets killed………

The novel in which everyone speaks with their own voice, even dead people and furniture start to talk, is about death, art, love, marriage and happiness as well as a requiem for the forgotten beauties of pictorial art.

    Went here – turned out to be something QUITE different from above ! Alain Lecucq was there – spoke to him and also seemed quite confused – said a mistake from the organizer’s side since the play requires elaborate preparations !

    It turned out to be a paper puppet show organized by students who trained under Alain for past about a fortnight, organized by UNIMA India ( google it ! ). Good attempt.

    Lesson – this happens too , better to check out day before !
