Feist Shadow Show

Working with Clea Minaker, Leslie Feist, Noah Kenneally and Dianne Montgomery, we performed shadows at a secret show at the Cameron House. Turning the stage into a living lantern, we created living paintings, manipulated shadows and eventually destroyed the lantern itself. Footage can be seen on the special features of "Look What the Light Did Now."

The show later grew and was performed in Montreal's Casteliers festival. Directed by Clea and Leslie, us shadow puppeteers created and performed the goods.
