A new, comprehensive website dedicated to Shadow Theatre
Short-listed for the "Best Website for Educational Use", Ermis Award
An original interactive presentation of shadow theatre, exploring the fascinating journey of this art form in space and time - from East to West and from past to present. Combining texts, impressive photographic material and short video footage, the website pieces together a detailed picture of shadow theatre, placing emphasis on the creators and performances of the Greek Karaghiozis, from its first performances to the present. The rich material, which includes unpublished collections of figures, is greatly enhanced by modern, lively graphic design. The site constitutes a novel approach in the study of shadow theatre. Appealing to a general audience, it is particularly useful as educational material.
