An overview of techniques and technology for sand drawings and shadow puppetry on light tables, to perform under a camera for large-scale video projection in live performance.
The performance techniques taught by Paradox Teatro artists can be applied to a variety of live performance styles, in addition to filmmaking and animation. The workshop begins with a behind-the-scenes demonstration of how the Paradox Teatro artists perform a scene from their multimedia puppetry performance MIGRACIONES / MIGRATIONS. Participants will next be guided through creating their own shadow puppet. Then participants will gain hands-on experience practicing sand drawings and performing shadow puppets on stage with light tables, cameras, and video projection.
Each participant will be invited to create an elegantly simple scene utilizing sand drawings and shadow puppetry, accompanied by live music provided by Paradox Teatro.
The artists are interested in responding to the unique interests and questions of each participant by supporting participants ranging from beginners to experts of all ages.
