PAPER PLANE PEOPLE SHADOW TROUPE
This is a December 2014 performance of “Paper Plane People” by the Academic Magnet High School’s Paper Plane People Shadow Puppet Troupe. This shadow puppet performance was inspired by the puppet masters Jumaadi and Geoffrey Cormier, who assisted the students throughout the time they spent creating the show. The students in creative writing and visual art spent time with the artists and learned about their creative processes, and also took a field trip to see Jumaadi’s work at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. Every story, puppet, and sound was created by the students.
