Shadow Dance Puppetry Workshop

On the 18 February 2017 I delivered to shadow puppetry workshops at the Royal West Academy (RWA) to coincide with their Strange Worlds: The Vision of Angela Carter exhibition.

The first workshop was for children with the latter being for adults. Both were really well attended and the results were very impressive.

The children worked on creating a shadow puppet performance of Angela Carter’s novel Nights at the Circus. Meanwhile the adults worked on a number of Carter’s short stories including The Tiger’s Bride and The Bloody Chamber.

You can view the final performances from each of the workshops below.
