A tale… the tale of a betrayal… about the betrayal of mankind…
The snake is a noble, human being is a renegade in the climate of this tale.
Theater Artı calls its audience to be partner to this tale! To the tale of Şahmeran…
So what is this tale of Şahmeran? Who is Şahmeran?
What this magnificent and wanderer figure that reachs out from the cub walls of village cafes to the coffee houses of the countrysides has been telling for centuries?
What Şahmeran that is embroidered to the lace pillow fronts and valances has been telling to these people?
What is this poison hidden in the bosom of story of Şahmeran?
A poison that has been going the rounds for a thousand years as a fairy tale.
