An America’s Got Talent finalist, Catapult is a shadow dance company that is truly a theatrical art form using an imaginative combination of dance, storytelling, and sculpture. When you enter the world of Magic Shadows, you will be mesmerized as incredible dancers transform their bodies into seemingly impossible shapes from the world around us. See Vivaldi’s Four Seasons spring to life, travel the world from Paris to Beijing in under 10 minutes, and be amazed as you watch the dancers transform their bodies into everyday shapes including a mountain, an elephant, a dragon, a helicopter, and more!
Animated by the dancers’ shadows, every cinematic scene in Magic Shadows is a kaleidoscope of colorful storytelling that will awe and astound you. A great show for the whole family, adults and children alike will be captivated by eight fully realized stories told using only music and shadows.
