Shadow puppet show: 10.30am (no need to book!)



My Shadow and Me

A fun and engaging show for children and family audiences made out of shadows and
reflected light.
My Shadow and Me is like a cartoon created live out of nothing but darkness and light.
One person (and his shadow) meet and go on an incredible, imaginative, shadowy
journey where creatures emerge, engage and transform beautifully. The show uses minimal language in combination with electronic music, a kazoo, a shaker and non-verbal voice effects. Little encounters between characters are explored and tiny stories unfold. Many are funny, some are sweet. The ever fascinating and adorable hand shadow bunny makes an appearance as part of a simple magic trick, and the show ends with a colourful and impressive finale in which multiple shadow characters
appear all at the same time – made with just two hands!
A simple, theatrical blend of amazing skill, simplicity, humour and shadow magic.
Suitable for children aged 4 and over.


Shadow Puppet Workshop is £1 per participant  - Limited places, please pre-book here!


The workshop includes activities for:
• creating individual animals with your hands,
• techniques for animating hand shadow creatures, and
• methods for giving the shadow-puppets a character.

(all children must be accompanied by an adult - adults do not need to book tickets.)
