Double Edge’s ability to weave acrobatics, shadow puppets, dance and music into the fabric of stories has never been more enchanting.
— Terry Byrne, The Arts Fuse

Shahrazad, A Tale of Love and Magic is the story of a woman who attempts to transform her world through courage and imagination. Shahrazad's mesmerizing tales weave together elements of poetry, flying, humor, live music, and the visual arts and demonstrate the triumph of creativity over destruction. The performance includes original compositions of live vocal and instrumental music ranging from traditional styles in North Africa, the Middle East, and India, and is realized in collaboration with a remarkable group of visual artists.
