- Round 4
The Shadow, a community engagement project led by Wendy Testu, is a visual and theatrical exploration into the art of shadow puppetry. Over six weeks, third grade students from Flynn elementary school will meet with artists to study the components of light and the ways we have used science and folklore to explain the world around us. Students will create a folktale through storyboarding, character development, dialogue writing, and the creation of paper puppets, scenery, and props. Resulting performances in English and Spanish will be presented for both the school community and the greater public.
