Russian Shadow Puppetry Masterclass

Join Paper Balloon Theatre Company, supported artists at Pegasus Theatre Oxford, for a stand-alone Russian Shadow Puppetry workshop lead by renowned Russian Puppet Director and Actor Maria Litvinova.

This two day intensive workshop will investigate Russian Shadow Puppetry techniques seldom seen in the UK. Maria will lead technical exercises exploring storytelling through shadow, culminating in performance pieces shared in a supportive environment.

Maria Litvinova is Artistic Director of Trikster Theatre in Moscow. Her production ‘Epic of Lilikane’ won the highest Russian performance accolade, the Golden Mask in 2010 at The Shadow Theatre, Moscow. She has directed and performed in many theatres in Russia and Europe including Moscow Puppet Theatre.

This workshop is suitable for puppeteers and non-puppeteers of all levels.

Paper Balloon will present their new work-in-progress show for family audiences, ‘One More Story!’ directed by Maria at Discover on 13th April.

 This workshop is supported by Half Moon as part of our partnership with Paper Balloon on One More Story.
