Shadow Kingdom 


Shadow Kingdom is our shadow puppetry show created in 2017, aimed at young people and the young at heart. Using almost four hundred hand-cut puppets, original music and silly voices, it presents a fantastic bedtime story in the style of Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland. We create a live animated movie right before your eyes!


There is a magical kingdom where it is always night. An Owl has taken over the throne and has made sleep forbidden. Can one human child stop the Owl before our undreamt dreams destroy the world?
Join us as we use hundreds of hand-cut puppets to perform a live animated movie before your eyes and take you on a journey to the Shadow Kingdom!
