Shadow Puppet Workshop

Participants learnt about the history of shadow puppets, how to make a shadow puppet and how shadows can be utilized in a theatrical production.

Puppeteer, Maggie Winston from Lost & Found Puppet Co. lead 3 workshops with Seniors and young people from the Sunset Community Neighbourhood.
Since 1999, the Ghost Train has become an annual tradition for thousands of families craving thrills and excitement. Reinventing itself each year with new themes, sets, costumes and many more surprises conjured up by the creative team at http://www.mortalcoil.bc.ca/, the Ghost Train is a uniquely wonderful and fun experience every trick-or-treat season.
Directors Sharon Bayly, Peter Hall and Marietta Kozak of Mortal Coil head up this year's crew of actors, dancers, stilt performers, and puppeteers bringing demons from all corners of the world's folklore to life. Don't worry, though—even as you venture through the Mouth of Hell and travel to the Underworld, you'll be out of harm's way in the safety of the Ghost Train...trust us! Mwahahahahahaha!
This year Mortal Coil offered free Shadow puppet workshops in community centres as a way to encourage participation, enhance understanding of puppetry and to enlargen community enagagement with this festival.
