Shadows in Stereo: An interactive 3D shadow theatre experience
November 17, 2011
In her new performance piece, Shadows in Stereo, acclaimed shadow theatre artist Christine Marie offers a rare opportunity for attendees not only to view her imaginative evening of short scenes, but to actively create their own images and experience stereoscopic 3D effects with their own shadows!
Guests will be invited to wear anaglyph glasses as they traverse the performance space while their shadows are projected 40’ high. Unlike a typical shadow, when viewed in 3D, stereoscopic shadows do not cling to surfaces. They move out into cubic space. A sense of somatic dislocation occurs that is surprising and delightful. The viewing experience is created by hand made stereoscopic lights and glasses constructed by the artist. Throughout the night, shadow casters enliven the installation with performances that highlight the effect and deepen the mystery of the form.
