Light and shadow belong together, that’s for sure. But what happens when the shadows suddenly develop a life of their own? All we can reveal is, that there will be plenty of mischief! They multiply at will, detach themselves from physical laws and make light their plaything. After far too long in the background, the shadows are now in the limelight themselves! But how is this possible? It almost seems as if the door to another world has been opened.
For their performance, the two artists Sarah Chaudon and Clara Palau y Herrero, graduates from the Figurentheater programme at the Stuttgart University of Music and Performing Arts, have teamed up with dramaturge Tobias Tönjes. Inspired by reading Roberto Casati’s book “The Discovery of the Shadow”, the trio has developed a clever and, above all, humorous play for young and old. In it, the possibilities of shadow theatre are repeatedly explored in surprising new ways, for which the work has already been awarded the Icelandic “Fox Award for Innovation in Puppetry”.
