Chinese shadow puppet theater


Shadow puppet theatre originated in China or from India. In China, it was essentially ritualistic: they used shadow puppets in ceremonies to recall the dead or entertain gods.

Today, shadow puppet shows are performed during major life changing events: births, marriages, funerals...

The silhouettes, people and animals take turns, renew themselves and change shape, all done with grace, fluidity and simplicity

A magical hallucination that blurs the real and the unreal! A show on the borderline of the supernatural!
