Shadow theatre in Israel – Kid’s show from Shadow Theatre Verba
Shadow performance in Netanya
In late February, we were lucky enough to present the Verba shadow theatre in Israel. It became possible after performance of shadow theatre in Germany on Jewrovision 2017 contest. The team performed at a private event with a 30-minute show. An audience was the most demanding and at the same time open to all new – children. The team of shadow theater Verba did not expect such an emotional reception.
Some serious performances were presented, such as “The History of the Jewish People”,” Save the Earth”, “Titanic”. But also children’s fairy tales, like “Alice in Wonderland”, “Aladdin”, “Hercules“.
Interestingly, the kids reacted quite unexpectedly to the play of actors. The figures in the shadow sometimes were even less interested. Most of all they liked such characters as Aladdin and Hercules.
We get a lot of great emotions in Israel. So, obviously that this is not the last performance of the Verba shadow theatre in Israel. Each of the dancers, clearly, left a piece of his “shadow” heart there.
