The Hefei Mapai Shadow Theatre Troup is coming to Sweden for the first time, playing for children.
Shadow Theatre is a 2000 years tradition, starting in Han-dynasty, but now unfortunately on it´s way to vanish, so this is a quite rare occasion.
The scene is simple; it is the delicate performance that attracts the audience.
Shadows of flat leather sculptures are projected on a white fabric screen with light, creating mysterious sceneries.
The stage take place in a small beautiful arch in Queen Kristinas castle, perfect for rear-illuminated puppet show.
