"Macondo" receives diploma of Belarusian festival

TEHRAN -- "Macondo", an Iranian play directed by Azadeh Ansari received a diploma for the best performance at the Belaya Vezha International Theater Festival.

The festival was held in Brest, Belarus running from September 5 to 12 and the Organizing Committee of the Festival granted the diploma to "Macondo" for its innovation and novel combination of puppets and actors.

"The Secretary of the festival also invited the troupe to participate in the next edition of the festival with a new play next year," Ansari told the Persian Service of ISNA.

"A good review of the play was written in the local daily of Brest. In addition, the participating troupes of Azerbaijan and Georgia invited the 'Macondo' team for performances at international festivals held in their countries," She remarked.

Written by Arash Parsakhu and directed by Ansari, "Macondo" is an adaptation of "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It features the story of a supernatural being in the form of an old man, who arrives in an imaginary town and the strange events that subsequently take place that influence the lives of the residents.

"Macondo" won the grand prize at the 12th Mobarak International Puppet Theater Festival last year.
