After hours of daytime rehearsals in August in Lebanon... hours of costume shopping and hunting for props in Beirut's sunday souk...hours of making puppets... and a 2 hour journey to Tripoli...BIM 3 finally began !
And what a touching experience it was. We had an intimate audience of about 100 Tripolitans, including our special invitees from the Chaarani orphanage. Before the performance began, Mr Bichara Assi, Head of the Train Syndicate, gave a small speech reflecting on the history of the location. Elias Khlatt, from the FRIENDS OF TRIPOLI TRAIN STATION also said a few words before handing the "stage" over to the BIM actors and pupeteers, who gave a stunning , first performance ! Mabrouk!
