Introduction to shadow and shadow theatre for professionals

Fabrizio Montecchi (Italy) offers a journey to discover techniques and languages of the contemporary shadow theatre, a language deeply theatrical nature, intangible art with enormous expressive and communicative possibilities.

“In the last thirty years the shadow theatre has undergone a remarkable revolution in technique and in language. Some characteristics of this change were the use of pinpoint lamps, the manipulation of the light, the special handling of the screen, the different kinds of shadow puppets, the projection behind and in front of the screens. For that the traditional limited space of the shadows, which we can look upon as a system of closed techniques and relationships, has been replaced by an open space, rich and dynamic in possibilities and powers of articulation. In our opinion this new space for the shadows is at the heart of the contemporary shadow theatre.”
