The Karagöz Everywhere project started with a group of Karagöz Shadow Theater lovers
who came together to continue to expand the scope of Karagöz Shadow Theater through out the world.
A group of Karagöz Shadow Theater lovers started "Karagöz Everywhere" project in 2016 with the idea of exposing the 700 year friendship of Karagöz and Hacivat to audiences around the world. With this mission in mind, we have been collaborating with artists and cultural institutions who have been touched by and enchanted with the Karagöz characters.
The cut-out shapes of the puppets sometimes include translucent color or other types of detailing. Various effects can be achieved by moving both the puppets and the light source.
