ISU Theatre and ISU Lectures present The Forest of the Witch, a modern interpretation of a traditional Anatolian shadow play adapted and performed by Ayhan Hulagu. When Karagöz, the hero of traditional Anatolian shadow plays, cuts the branches from a magical tree, he is transformed into a series of animals, which leads to a comic sequence of adventures. Along the way, Karagöz and his sidekick Hacivat learn the importance of nature and protecting the environment. Hulagu has performed The Forest of the Witch on Broadway and in theatres across the country.
