Shadow Puppetry at EdVenture

As children from across Columbia piled into EdVenture for the monthly family night event, an announcement revealed that ArtRageous would be surprising the delighted visitors with a puppet show.  Lyon Forest Hill, the head puppeteer at the Marionette Theater, presented the first of three performances in December of 2010, assisted by videographer Patrick Nugent and media arts student Tyler Carolin from the University of South Carolina.

Be on the look out for the next two performances of this exciting, original puppet show.  This show is intended to catch the younger crowds unaware.  Through this project, three media arts students from the University of South Carolina will have the opportunity to learn the shadow puppetry method used to create this mystifying performance.  This project was sponsored by the Arts Institute at the University of South Carolina.
