About the workshop 
Studies in Shadow Puppet Form and Performance introduces you to the use of shadow puppetry and storytelling. You will make a shadow puppet and learn to manipulate them to tell a story.

The Adventures of Seucy and Boto is an episodic series for kids about the Seucy, a brave little girl who battles any obstacle in order to keep the Amazon Jungle safe!  To date Loco7 has created four episodes.

In this Episode, Seucy, and her half-boy/half-dolphin pal Boto, unite with other amazing friends like Itzpapalotl the Butterfly, Sasha the Anaconda, Ceneotl the Frog, and Pachamama the Shaman.

Together they battle Yacu the River Monster and do what ever it takes to stop him from destroying the waters and all the creatures that live there.

Ages 4 and up!

Under the direction and vision of Federico Restrepo, Loco7 has been active since 1985. Restrepo creates animated movement in an ever-changing and surreal stage environment to address themes of South American culture and history, the immigrant experience, and urban life.

In the works: A book of The Adventures of Seucy and Boto, epi 1

We have completed the first draft of  – The Adventures of Seucy and Boto, volume 1.  After working last year on four episodes of our children’s show Seucy and Boto Adventures for the Amazon Jungle, we decided to make a book version.  We were lucky to have received a residency on Governors Island through Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Process Space.  This 5 month residency allowed us to make all the illustrations and write the story.  We hope to find a publisher soon…keep you posted!
