Educational program on the Greek Shadow Theater

Nov 24, 2012

An educational program that forms part of the exhibition-tribute to the Greek Shadow Theater...


An educational program has been organized to complement the exhibition “The triumph of shadows: The Greek Shadow Theater  through the work of Karaghiozis master Kostas Manos”, which the Hellenic American Union is presenting in cooperation with the arts company Among the Ants, the Archive of Greek Shadow Theater and the MUSIC* laboratory of the Technical University of Crete. The program includes a guided tour of the exhibiton, a short Karaghiozis performance, an introduction to the eShadow program and the creation of a performance using the program.

The main part of the educational program concerns eShadow, an innovative research project that is being conducted by the MUSIC* laboratory. This interactive shadow theater application has been inspired by the traditional Greek Shadow Theater. The project aims to familiarize children with the Karaghiozis folk art and build bridges of communication between different generations.
