Shadow Puppets in Argentina

I was lucky enough to take a workshop with shadow puppet artist Gabriel von Fernandez when I was in Argentina back in November. Based in Buenos Aires, Gabriel performs his own shadow puppet shows and teaches workshops to artists at all levels. Here is a page from my journal about my experience working with him.

Goodbye 2014…Hello 2015!

We’re heading into a new year, with new projects and adventures on the horizon. Thank you for reading our blog this year, for coming to our shows, for commenting on Facebook or Twitter and cheering us on. The audience is an essential part of any performance work and we value every single one of you, either online or in real life. We hope to see you again soon!
