In February and March 2021 Little Angel Theatre collaborated with Chance UK to deliver online child-centred shadow puppetry workshops for children aged 5-10 and their families.
Participants learned how to make shadow puppets, scenery, and a makeshift shadow screen in their homes, bringing their creations to life by performing a short scene for each other. These workshops allowed children to express their imagination through a new artform and provided some creative escapism during the lockdown.
Chance UK is an award winning early intervention children’s charity. Their vision is for every child in the UK to feel happy about themselves, realise their potential, and be confident in their ability to build a brighter future. The charity provides solutions focussed mentoring and family support for children aged 5-13 with behavioural and emotional difficulties, alongside group workshops designed to build social and emotional skills and resilience.
