“A portable projection system tailored for shadow puppetry and live-drawing”
Mobile Shadow Projection Theater
Andrea Steudel has collaborated with numerous artists to assemble and deploy a portable projection system tailored for shadow puppetry and live-drawing. Critical to this venture is custom performance software created by Ali Momeni. It is deployed ubiquitously in the public sphere; on city structures and landscape.
The culmination of the Mobile Shadow Projection Theater includes the performance of Triquetra,, a work with theater artist David Steinman and local musician John Keston at the Weisman Art Museum, as well as video documentation of other urban performances over the course of the fellowship.
