Hand Shadow Artist – Drew Colby

28th October 2022 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Based in London, Drew is founder of the Finger and Thumb Theatre, specialising in hand shadow puppets and ‘instant puppetry’. Described as ‘a man who can create almost anything with his hand shadows’, he has performed all over the world. The new company name is “Shadowgraphy”, which covers the diversity of Drew’s work, including television and advertising. https://www.shadowgraphy.co.uk/431685363

My Shadow and Me is like a cartoon created live out of nothing but darkness and light. One person (and his shadow) meet and go on an incredible, imaginative, shadowy journey where creatures emerge, engage and transform beautifully. The show uses minimal language in combination with unusual interpretations of classical music and non-verbal voice effects. Little encounters between characters are explored and tiny stories unfold. Many are funny, some are sweet. The ever fascinating and adorable hand shadow bunny makes an appearance as part of a simple magic trick, and the show ends with a colourful and impressive finale in which multiple shadow characters appear all at the same time – made with just two hands!!
