Shadow and Light
20 - 21 August 2022
There is more to shadows than shadow puppets. Explore the world of shadows through a variety of different techniques and media, using overhead projectors, L.E.Ds and special shadow lights. A rare opportunity to work with this master shadow maker.
Over the weekend you will discover the magic of shadows, get to use the equipment and create a performance.
This is an exciting opportunity to work with Steve Tiplady who has been at the forefront of the medium for 30 years and created many shadow performances, most recently Svartstrålle in Oslo this Spring.
