MIMI the Gourmet Cat

Colourful shadow puppet show like animation in live!

The show is about a cat who travels around the world eating in different restaurants and experiencing different cultures.

The show uses over 120 intricately cut shadow puppets in only 25 minutes. We project them onto a large screen to create the feeling of watching a live animated movie.

The show is best for preschool, kindergarten and early grade elementary school students.
