March 2022: Soo Dhawoow! The East African Women’s Foundation Youth Group’s People’s Puppet Project with Snuff Puppets was a huge success! Over three months a giant puppet show based on a Somali folktale of Deghdeer was created. The show stars five new giant puppets, with bilingual storytelling and traditional songs performed by local Somali elders.
ABC TV’s Art Works filmed a story on the project – iview.abc.net.au/show/art-works
Deghdeer will be performed again at Brimbrank’s Be Bold festival, on 8th & 9th October 2022.
