You are the best art and performing teachers I have ever had. It was really fun working with you. Sam

Workshops run with Karin Andrews Jashapara as shadow theatre is one of her areas of expertise. Part of the Conference of the Birds arts project in the London Borough of Sutton, with year 5 Stanley Park Junior School.

Karin and I developed use of recycled materials for the project, including sweet wrappers for colour. We worked with 60 of year 5, to help them create a shadow puppet each. Children collected translucent Christmas sweet wrappers to use!

The show and project were funded by Arts Council of England.

It has been great bringing the birds to life, amazing learning how to do something new like this. Sayini

I found it really fun as we got to cut out our puppet shapes and pin them together. George

I was one of the very lucky people who actually saw the show and it was wonderful! B Clark Headteacher Stanley Park Junior School

Right: Shadow puppets and sets were projected large scale on stage. Children peformed their puppets telling the story of the Conference of the Birds at the Secombe Theatre, Sutton along with people from other community groups, who contributed to the final performance. Over 150 people performed during the Conference of the Birds, including poetry, dance, shadow puppetry, mixed media projections, acting, original soundscapes and music.

 

I'm very proud of myself as this was something completely new. I controlled my puppet and remembered my lines in front of an audience in the Secombe Theatre! Anna year 5
