Lilac Yosiphon – The Shoes of Tanbury

“And it is really on this day that the story of Tanboury’s strange shoes begins…”

An R&D to devise an ensemble-led, bilingual adaptation of The Shoes of Tanbury in BSL and English. Based on a book by Lilac Yosiphon’s grandfather, Shimon Ballas, an Arab-Jewish writer born and raised in Baghdad, this powerful tale examines wanting to change one’s place in the world, self-worth, misfortune, and socio-economic preconceptions.
