Project description

Shadow Shapers is a cross art form ‘Arts in Education’ ‘Creative Ireland’ project  designed by Theatre Artist Margaret Callan Bergin in collaboration with 3rd class teachers of Lucan East ET. Sarah and Tomas. The project is using creativity as an inspirational pathway to broader learning for the students. Taking the theme of ‘light and Shadow’ as an inspirational starting point the students will explore our theme through the medium of visual art, storytelling and Theatre. The project gives the students and teachers unique access to engagement with a professional playwright and Theatre practitioner. They will learn the step by step mechanics of building a story and producing their own shadow puppet theatre play. This will include voice recordings in a professional studio and a visit to Rua Red Arts Centre Gallery
