Shadow Of Truth: A shadow puppet workshop

The Canadian Academy of Mask and Puppetry with support from the Alberta Theatre Association and Christie Lights – Facilitated by Tamara Unroe.

This is a workshop to explore fundamentals and innovations in the art of shadow puppetry. Shadow puppetry is a primal way to tell stories – it has been around since the time we were leaping about the cave fire trying to account the grave misfortunes of Gog getting trampled by some shaggy beast – and yet it resonates in the most subtle and artful ways.

The Canadian Academy of Mask and Puppetry in association with the Old Trout Puppet Workshop will host nationally renowned shadow artist Tamara Unroe from Regina, Saskatchewan for this two and half day workshop. This is an opportunity to learn through the basics and into more complex possibilities of the form.Pull yourself back from the digital age and immerse yourself in the simple act of telling stories through the negative space.
