A Tale of A Tiger by Dario Fo, Freely Adapted and Performed by Ami Dayan
Appropriate for families and children aged 5 and up!
In honor of Nobel Laureate playwright Dario Fos 90th Birthday, Maya Productions, in collaboration with The Catamounts, is bringing the internationally acclaimed A TALE OF A TIGER back to Boulder.
TIGER is based on an ancient Chinese theatre folk tale with roots in an Indian myth. Left for dead on the battlefield, a Chinese soldier in Mao's army is seized by a tiger and her cub. A unique relationship, both terrifying and hilarious develops between man and animal as the tigress nurses him back to health. His life regained, the soldier must return to the world and determine by which personal and moral standards he is to live.
"A Tour de force for versatile Dayan. Blending charismatic narration and colorful character work, he plays everything from a spiritual husker to an operatic tiger, swings like Tarzan, seems serene as Buddha. And like all truth-tellers, he leaves us with a tale that resonates." THE DENVER POST
