Have you ever been lost in the forest? Nazanin Arastoo wrote a puppet play about the experience. She’ll present the show at the community center this Saturday at 1 p.m.
In her play, a lost boy has a series of misadventures, some funny and some scary. Ultimately, he finds his way out of the forest, tired but wiser.
Arastoo, a native of Tehran, Iran, makes puppets from found materials. She uses them to teach and entertain children and adults.
Arastoo experienced the Iranian Islamic Revolution and lived through two years of the Iran-Iraq war. Her family fled over the mountains to Turkey when the nightly bombings escalated.
This will be Arastoo’s first time performing in Lovelock. She has lived in the United States for over three decades teaching art, music and puppet theater. The show is free to the public. It is sponsored by the Pershing County Library and the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts.
