Shadow Puppetry 101 with Pup House

Learn how to design and create your own shadow puppet as we approach shadow puppetry as a form of magic; using slights of hand to deceptively delight an audience. In this workshop, we will briefly consider the little known history of shadows in storytelling, then dim the lights to experiment with a variety of techniques for simple shadow puppet theater. This class is led by members from the Chicago based experimental puppet collaborative, Pup House.

Made Possible by Poetry Magazine. Shadow Puppetry 101 is a lead up event to the 10th Annual Printers Ball: Chatter, hosted by Spudnik Press Cooperative.
