We were invited to the Montreal Children’s Library this Wednesday, with our new pre-school shadow workshops. These workshops start of with a story performed by us (currently we’re working on a version of “George and the Dragon”) and we then have a series of interactive games where all participants become puppeteers! Thanks to Elizabeth Macdonnell for inviting us and Thanks to Susan Van Gelder for taking some of the pictures below. You can find us featured on her blog here.

After the performance we have a game that unveils the relationship between light and shadow, at first we create shadows using our own bodies.
Then it’s puppetry time! During the workshop our story was turned into a battle between the princesses and the dragons.
