Mosul Tells puppet theatre workshop in Sulimania, Iraq

“The ‘Mosul Tells’ project’s second phase is in full swing, bringing art and community together. On Saturday eight participants embarked on their puppet theater journey led by the puppet theatre icon Alison Duddle. They are exploring puppet and mask theatre as a peacebuilding tool among different ethnic and religious groups from Mosul and Sindschar. This is the first 2-weeks workshop out of 6 weeks in total.

Participants shared…:

“We often describe Mosul as an orchid with different flowers representing different ethnic groups”
“I felt as if I and the puppet were one soul”
