Children love to play with shadows, but making friends with your shadow can be a tricky business. There are things to sort out, problems to solve, adventures to have and laughter to be shared.


 

Me and My Shadow is a gentle magical visual poem for children, using paper, light, shadow, colour, water, music, sound and words to create a world of play where the imagined becomes real.

 

With fantastical imagery, quirky physical performances and an intriguing score, Me and My Shadow ignites the imagination in a poetical experience that explores the trials and joys of friendship.
