The Trick

Afraid of your own shadow? You should be.

Driven by a desire to create something original, one man releases control of his own shadow in the hope that it will discover the kind of beauty that he can only dream of.

Inspired by Hans Christian Anderson's 'The Shadow', this puppetry show for adults has been created by Total

Theatre Award winning directors and Emerge Leeds company in residence.

This wordless contemporary fairy tale is played to a live original music score. Featuring angry pegs, dancing scissors, magic taps and flying creatures. The Trick is playful, bizarre, beautiful and tragic.
