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. You will collaboratively develop a short shadow puppet piece, which you will perform for the public, here at Sirovich Center.

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!
