The Book of Shadows, is a unique blend of mixed media theatre performance incorporating live actors, shadow puppetry and video projections to create a series of stories, interpreting myths, legends, folk tales and the art of storytelling from different cultures around the world.
The plot opens with two weary travellers seeking shelter in a remote cave. Emerging shadows begin to magically appear on the cave wall, depicting various ‘chapters’ of a mysterious book. Perched in the worlds of magic, illusion, shadow and light, mythology, legend and fable, Book of Shadows explores the multi-faceted dreamscape of our imagination and beyond.
