Poetic reconstruction of memories lost
After years, a woman has returned to Iran to sell her parental home. She fled the country as a child during the war with Iraq. Returning to the home of her early youth, she cautiously attempts to reconstruct memories she thought she had lost. Iranian Pouppe Theater has found a special way to represent the reconstruction. Using beautifully crafted maquettes and tiny puppets filmed by the performers, Flight 745 brings the war-tinged memories of the protagonist to life in a poetical manner.

NOTICE: an hour before the show starts there will be no more tickets available online, but only at the location.

“In 1987, during the war between Iran and Iraq, Marjan Poorgholamhossein was first introduced to the power of puppets.”
