Supported by YTB, Karagoz Everywhere Team will tour the United States during Ramadan in 2023 to bring shadow puppetry to citied along the East Coast.
Karagöz Everywhere Project is a proud initiative of Turkish American Arts Society of New York (TAASNY) that started in 2016 with the vision of expanding the scope and horizon of traditional Turkish Shadow Theatre nationally and internationally; hence “Karagöz Everywhere”. Our mission is simple: to introduce and engage as many people as we can with Karagöz, and spread the magical experience of the “dream curtain” to audiences from all around the world. With this mission in mind, we started forming a Karagöz Team that consists of various artists, scholars, puppeteers, and academicians from around the world. Karagöz Everywhere strives to perform the highest quality of entertainment to promote understanding, tolerance, and communication across the diverse mosaic of our society through arts.
Our special thanks go to Karagoz Everywhere, Ibrahim Yazici & Dr. Aysen Darcan, sponsored by Turkish + American Arts Society of New York! We'd also love to thank Professor Bart (Director of the Puppet Arts Program) for bringing Turkish shadow theatre to UConn!
