Image: Join Rachel Riggs for Shadow Play

An ancient form of storytelling and performance, shadow play involves using puppets to cast a silhouette on a translucent screen — making the figures walk, dance, fight, nod and laugh!

Join prolific Hundreds & Thousands artist and puppeteer Rachel Riggs as she takes you on a storytelling journey to other worlds using light, handmade puppets and, of course, your imagination.

Stay after the session and explore the rest of the immersive colourful spaces in the exhibition.
