Arabian Nights: The Porter's Tale at The ARTS at Marks Garage



Arabian Nights: The Porter's Tale

In THE PORTER’S TALE, one story unfolds into another until, in a party, each of three one-eyed men tells his bizarre roller-coaster tale of how he lost his eye. Come hear! This is Islam’s ‘pulp fiction’, revealing the anonymous genius of the people of sands. In Hawaii, responding to the Iraq War, JEFF GERE performed 10 Arabian Night tales over 18 months of sold-out shows (with belly dancer & 2 musicians). This is his favorite set of stories. Hold ON! Shadow puppets will animate three sections too. The show runs 90+ minutes. 

Content Warning: Tales include violence, extreme characters, & poetry.

Tickets: $15 pre-sale, $20 at the door
