This is an excerpt from the opening sequence. Peter's Shadow, is performed with three moving screens, hand held shadow lights and features one scene in anaglyph 3D.
Peters' Shadow, is a play adapted from an 18th century story of a man named Peter Schlemiehl who sells his shadow to a mysterious illusionist called, The Grey Man. Throughout his journey Peter finds friendship, love and a purse of endless gold. Ultimately he must forgo each of these in order to banish evil and retain his Soul. This archetypal relationship between the Trickster and the Fool is illustrated throughout this production and the representation of experiential knowledge versus scholarly pursuit.
