Shadow Tales

Shadow Tales offers a unique storytelling experience which combines traditional storytelling with shadow puppet theatre. Audiences will delight at the colourful images presented on the beautiful, Javanese-style shadow screen, as tales of fantasy and wonder unfold before their eyes. There will be a question / answer period following the presentation to give children an opportunity to learn more about the wonderful world of shadow puppet art.

Sandra Phillips has studied the ancient art of wayang kulit (shadow puppet theatre) in Java, Indonesia and brings to her performances a fascinating collection of  shadow puppets from Indonesia, India, Thailand, China and Turkey. She also performs using her own unique shadow puppet designs which combine intricate paper cutting techniques with batik painting.
