Shadows 101: Foundations of Shadow Theater

The Original Screen Time

This story began over twenty years ago when I experienced shadow theater for the first time while attending a play in New York City. This ancient art form, with probable origins in Southeast Asia, has traveled to every part of the world, adapting and changing. It's in this spirit of adaptation that I founded Firelight to bring shadow theater into the home. 

I like to think of shadow puppetry as the “Original Screen Time,” with its bold shapes, dramatic movement and playful shadow casting coming together to create a captivating storytelling medium.

I invite you to enter the world of shadow theater so you can explore the magic of this artform for yourself.

See you in the land of shadows!
