FIREFLY SHADOW THEATER

Firefly Shadow Theater transforms the ancient art of shadow puppetry. The "players" are visually stunning puppets behind a screen, ingeniously animated against a background of striking scenes.

Firefly offers hands-on, tailor-made workshops, residencies and interactive performances ideal for elementary school students and their teachers, lasting from half a day to several weeks. Firefly presents any combination of shadow puppet-making workshops; short performances; opportunities for students to get behind the scenes; the chance to write short shadow plays, to improvise and to perform; and a unique visual history of this fascinating dramatic art form, demonstrating traditional puppets from China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia and Turkey. Firefly makes connections across curricula including fine arts, science, social studies, language arts, theater, engineering/inventing, and music in an innovative, enjoyable and educationally valuable way.
