About the Event

Get inspired at this exciting bilingual Chinese shadow puppetry workshop! Chinese shadow puppetry is a theatrical art form that dates back thousands of years. The puppets are typically made of semi-transparent leather plates engraved with intricate designs and colored with dyes. When lit from behind, these figures cast colorful shadows onto a screen. Behind the screen, puppeteers move the figures to play out scenes set to music.

In this workshop led by Janny Chyn from Shanghai Pathways, and famous local artists, you’ll explore the history of Chinese shadow puppetry and see how it has evolved as an art form still practiced today. Along the way, you'll get to see examples of puppets used in theatrical productions. Then, it’s time to get out your scissors and get to work assembling your very own puppet, and learn the skills of manipulation.

In this workshop, the shadows are out to play. Let the theatrics begin! This program is open to adults and kids age 6 and up.
