Sharing Shadows Telling Stories
April 6 @ 10:00
The Fetch Theatre is a touring theatre company producing a highly visual style of theatre incorporating puppetry and mask work. Committed to promoting theatre as an activity for everyone, The Fetch brings theatre of the highest quality to audiences that may not have easy access to the arts.
This workshop crosses many learning fields from the science of light to the beauty of animated stories.
Firstly, participants will be shown how to operate shadow puppets, teaching them the various ways that shadows can be use to tell stories. They will begin by manipulating our exquisitely made shadow puppets on our shadow screen, and then use an overhead projector to increase the size and scale of the image.
After this inspiring introduction into visual animation, the group will be given the task of making their own shadows from materials that we will provide, and then return to the screen with their new shadow puppets to devise a short story.
This workshop is for children aged 6+ and their accompanying grown ups (who do not need to purchase a ticket)
Tickets are being sold on a Pay What You Can basis for this workshop, we hope this enables as many young people as possible to participate and that money is not a barrier. We would encourage those who can pay more, to do so, but be assured no questions will be asked.
