This is a snapshot of a shadow puppet performance that students performed excitedly for each other. The technology involved in manipulating shadow is fascinating. To understand how to communicate emotion and tell stories through shadow is a sophisticated art. I have used old cardboard boxes with a small IKEA light clipped to the back and paper stuck to the front. A cheap portable set for storytelling or retelling what happened in a very engaging way. I also recommending students filming each other’s performances and sharing with others to enjoy!
