Slingsby Theatre Techniques:
Shadow & Miniaturisation

Over the past 14 years, Slingsby has developed a distinctive look and feel to its theatre making. From The Tragical Life of Cheeseboy (2007) to The Boy Who Talked to Dogs (2021), each show has incorporated elements of shadow play, miniaturisation and sustained moments of image and sound. Through this hands-on workshop students will discover how these techniques can be used in storytelling to create their own short pieces of theatre.

NB: This workshop includes access to Slingsby’s torches and materials to create beautiful shadow play.
