I am starting a new project today. I have set a personal deadline to make a shadow puppet show called 'Winter' for Christmas. I will document it's progress here on my new blog. 'Winter' has been a long time coming - inspired by my love of shadow puppetry, the work of Lotte Reiniger and my recent trip to magical Bonchurch on the Isle of Wight. A celebration of the darkest, coldest season of the year and an attempt to raise the sometimes lowered spirit as days get darker and shorter. A celebration of hibernation and journeying inwards with flickering lights and many layers. To begin with it will be a special show, with private views for friends and family this Christmas. Watch this space for progress. Any feedback gratefully received.
