The Kousha Puppets troupe will perform two shows guaranteed to delight young and old audiences alike. The Kousha Puppets troupe was founded by Nassef Azmy in Fayoum in 2000. The troupe presented “The snake’s game” in 2004, and then put its activities on hold for several years after the Beni Soueif theatre fire. The troupe resumed its activities in 2012 focusing on puppet shows in public spaces. It presented “We’ll solve it” and performed in the opening of the CirCairo festival, as well as creating the shows “Burn” “El 3aw El Saw” and most recently “Don’t look Loulou.”
