The Future of Shadow Puppetry?

The Future of Shadow Puppetry?

Reverse Shadow Theatre is an installation created with the Animata real-time animation editor.

Wayang Kulit is the indonesian shadow puppet theater, in which finely carved and painted leather puppets move behind a screen making the audiance see their shadows only. In their installation the situation is reversed. The role of the elaborate puppets is emphasized, while the visitor is a mere shadow trying to control the puppets by her movements.
