Shadow Puppetry is an ancient art form which is practised in various Asian and South East Asian countries such as China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand etc. Shadow puppetry is an awesome platform for us to express ourselves via storytelling. It is also a great tool for language learning.
Join BC Culture Days 2023 Ambassador Cherie Chai from Speak Write Academy to discover the wonders of the ancient art form Shadow Puppetry. You will learn how to make your own shadow puppets using simple, eco-friendly and vegan materials, learn how to storyboard to create your stories and make your puppet characters come alive with musical accompaniment behind a shadow puppet screen. You will also be given the opportunity to learn different languages such as Dakelh, French, Korean, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Hindi and Farsi, and to use the different languages in your storyboarding and shadow puppet performances. Feel free to record a video of your shadow puppet performance and bring home your shadow puppet as souvenirs!
ASL interpretation will be provided for the workshop and puppet performances.
This free event is suitable for all ages and will be held at the Prince George Public Library. We hope to see you there! 🙂
