A multimedia production for the very young (ages 2-5), Shadow Play explores what happens to your shadow when you go to sleep.
Shadow Play, An original multi-media production for audiences ages 2-5
Have you ever wondered what happens to your shadow when you fall asleep? Flash has moved into a new house, and his shadow faithfully helps him unpack. But when Flash decides to go to sleep for the night, his shadow has other plans. This original piece of theater will invite the youngest of audiences (ages 2-5) on an exploration of the secret life of shadows. Trusty Sidekick Theater Company will create a multi-sensory experience for children and their caregivers that employs innovative video projection, animation, music, and immersive staging to discover the mysterious and mischievous shadow behind each of us. The new play is being produced as part of a residency at The Performance Project @ University Settlement. It has been developed in conjunction with the Early Childhood Center at the University Settlement, through dramaturgical workshops creating the content of the show alongside 2-5 year old participants.
Shadow Play will premiere at the University Settlement in the Lower East Side of New York City in March 2012. Your contribution will help bring this production to life. Funds raised through this campaign will support the work of a talented team of creative professionals devloping the piece. Further your donation will ensure that we can reach underserved audiences by keeping ticket prices low for children and families.
