The Parrot and the Merchant with Alia Alzougbi

Hay Festival 2017, 

Long, long ago in Persia, storytellers (pardekhans) would travel the empire with illustrations painted on to a large canvas (called a parde). As they travelled from town to town, they would stand before the crowd, display the canvas and narrate their story. Come and experience the ancient practice of pardekhani with Tiny Owl’s wonderful storyteller and discover the epic tale by the legendary Persian poet Rumi, illustrated by Marjan Vafaian.
