Drew Colby – Shadowgraphy, UK  MY SHADOW AND ME

“All objects have a story to tell, but puppets are objects with rare power.” ~ Steve Abrams, Puppeteer

Though puppetry is often seen in the public eye as children’s entertainment, people of all ages have used and enjoyed puppets for thousands of years. Recreating characters and stories with puppets helps children to absorb and remember what they have learned and internalise information so that they can retell the stories from the mind and the heart. Puppets make an emotional as well as cognitive connection to ideas, information, stories, characters, literature and historical and life situations.

Created and performed by Drew Colby
No language – 45 minutes
For all above 4 years of age

One person and his shadow meet and go on an incredible shadowy journey where creatures emerge, engage and transform. Little encounters between characters are explored and tiny stories unfold. Many are funny, some 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.
