In a buzzing Bengali bazaar, a cunning market trader and a soulful Baul singer squabble over the meaning of life! Colourful characters and unexpected landscapes emerge to tell the hilarious tale of the Invention of Shoes. After discovering a speck of dirt on his feet King Hobu sends Minister Gobu on a quest to rid the land of dirt ...in three days. If he fails he shall be forever exiled! Who will save the town from despair? This imaginative, puppet led showcase of Tagore’s fairytale brings the story of a king and commoner to life. It looks at relevant themes such as health and the environment, sustainability, and interconnectedness, as well as being a social commentary on the egos and agendas of those with power.
Directors: Jum Faruq and Rachel Warr
Writer: Jum Faruq. Adaptation of Rabindranth Tagore's original poem
