Hand Shadow Puppetry
Description: As the lights go down a single white circle (like a full moon) is illuminated; the shadow of a hand appears in the circle – two hands. Then with a deft movement the hands have transformed into a bird, a rabbit, a flowing river or a mans face, and the audience are laughing, gasping and demanding to know “How does he do that?” What is this magic of light and dark that so transfixes young and old? It is the ancient art of Hand Shadows (or Shadowgraphy) - the art of creating and animating shadow images using little more than the performers hands. In Drew Colbys hands the artform is a source of comedy, beauty and wonder.

In a word - a delight
