The first image is from For a Nickel I'd do it Again. This is a shadow / dance piece that was conceived and performed in collaboration with choreographer /dancer Wanda Strukus for an event at the Peabody Essex Museum. The story line was inspired by a painting by Thomas Hart Benton which was on exhibit in the museum gallery. The work resulted in a shadow show performed on two overhead projectors with Wanda dancing and interacting with the images on the shadow screen.
The next five images are from dream sequences in Goblin Market. Through the use of shadow masks, adult human figures are transformed into a child and a goblin. A transparency and a mirror puppet were also utilized to create ghostly white images on the screen.
The remaining shadow images are from a filmed shadow sequence I created for a touring production called Three Cats of Venice, directed by Vincent Ernest Siders.
