Title: Learning to host a shadow puppetry show

Date: April 2013

Venue: Shreyas, Ahmedabad

 

What do you do on a scorching summer day in Ahmedabad? If you are anywhere between 7 and 12 years of age, you head to the cool environs of Shreyas to host your own puppet show. Artisans Thulasi Rao and Gangi Shetty came over for a week to train kids on  how to host their own show. The children made leather puppets of the characters, rehearsed the dialogues and gave some interesting background scores to enact their stories. The venue came alive with stories of Chota Bheem, pokemon and dinosaurs!
