CATAPULT – SHADOW ILLUSION

An AGT finalist, Catapult is a shadow-illusion production featuring incredible dancers working behind a screen to create shadow silhouettes of shapes from the world around us. With the arc of an arm, the point of a toe or the twist of a torso, the dancers stretch their bodies, and your imaginations, telling stories with humor and pathos by transforming magically from one shape to another. Animated by the dancers’ shadows, every cinematic scene is a kaleidoscope of colorful storytelling that awes and astounds. You will leave a Catapult performance astonished and dazzled, and you will never look at your own shadow the same way again!
