Inspired by the quiet, magical atmosphere they instill and the connection to our ancestry, I have been making shadow puppet works since 2008. The simplicity and accessibility of this particular type of puppetry is particularly appealing to me, along with the ease in creating something so simple yet beautiful.
Rambling Shadows are short shadow puppet stories and poems, designed, made and performed by me. The stories I chose are often traditional global folk tales; or created by me with this style in mind.
Normally performed live, the global pandemic of 2020 encouraged me to explore digitalising these stories. You can find a selection of my shadow films on my YouTube channel Rambling Shadow Stories - click the image below.
