In looking at All the better to see you with, the forest, the woods, the jungle and trees are common elements represented throughout the fairy tale experience, as is notions of the journey and transformation.
Inspired by Lotte Reiniger’s portrayal of the Adventures of Prince Achmed in her animated silhouette film of 1926, this improvised shadow puppet performance will showcase the creations from the Sally Smart Puppetry Workshop held earlier in the day.
