Shadow Theatre

Picture in Focus online exhibition – Hillview School for Girls, Kent

Art & Design, ICT, Drama

Year 8 pupils at Hillview School for Girls created a piece of shadow theatre. Pupils created a series of freeze frames to tell the story of the Diana and Actaeon myth. Bold, physical gestures were used to recreate key narrative moments, which were photographed as shadow silhouettes.

These images were edited together with text descriptions. The varying speed of the montage creates a sense of urgency and terror, while being reminiscent of old silent films.
