What do translucent animal skins and overhead projectors have in common? Shadow puppetry is a centuries-old art form that is constantly evolving to incorporate new materials and technologies.
In "Introduction to Shadow Puppetry," students will learn the history of shadow performance and see examples of the exciting work being developed by today's shadow puppeteers. Through building and performance assignments, the class will explore diverse styles of shadow puppets ranging from simple hand shadows to elaborate cut-out figures with moving parts. By the end of the class, students will have acquired all the tools they need to create their own shadow puppet show!Questions?
