In August, the workshop "The World Behind the Shadow" by Fantasy Puppet Theatre was successfully held. The workshop is going to be re-run in October to share the secrets of shadow puppetry. This is a not-to-be-missed event for families.
Tailor-made for kids aged 3 or above and their parents, the activities in this workshop include demonstrating both traditional and modern shadow puppetry, learning the techniques to control the puppets, a question-and-answer session and photo taking. This workshop offers an excellent opportunity for children and parents to enjoy shadow puppetry together.
Established in 2005, Fantasy Puppet Theatre is one of a handful of Hong Kong puppet theatre companies and works with a wide range of techniques to produce original puppet shows for children, youngsters and their parents.
The workshop "The World Behind the Shadow" by Fantasy Puppet Theatre (conducted in Cantonese) is presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. It will be held at 3pm on October 22 and 23 (Saturday and Sunday) at the Auditorium, North District Town Hall.
