During the week, they experimented the magic of shadow theatre. The participants explored different types of visual, non-verbal communication, through which they could create extraordinary moments with just a light source, some pieces of paper and carton and recycled materials.

Each session brought the participants a new challenge of conception and moment creation for the show starting from: a given background soundtrack or from two images with no connection, or a song they heard for the first time, etc..

The third workshop Grundvig “Puppetry in Communication” brought together participants from Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey. For a week, they worked together experiencing different animation techniques and different types of puppets.
The participants explored various types of verbal and nonverbal communication, and different ways they can build expressive puppets using only recycled materials and all of these helped to learn how to communicate more easily through puppet theatre.
In the shadow theatre workshops, balloon modelling and building puppets of plastic bottles, the participants were able to build true mini-puppet theatre using both traditional tales of their countries and fantastic stories.
