Catapult uses a fascinating combination of shadow dance, story-telling and sculpture to engage the eye and spark the imagination. Finalists on the eighth season of “America’s Got Talent,” Catapult is all about the human body and its ability to transform. The talented dancers work behind a screen, moving together and separately to create seemingly impossible shadow silhouettes of the world around us – from an enormous mountain to a moving helicopter, from a live elephant to people talking inside a windowed house, and everything in between. It is impossible to imagine what will be shaped next or how it will be done, the transformations emerge to the delight of audiences as the unbelievable becomes believable before their very eyes.
Developed by founder and artistic director Adam Battlestein, Catapult’s “Magic Shadows” is packed with hundreds of shape transformations. There are eight stories told through music and shadows, as well as six shorter videos and brief moments of poetry and humor. “Magic Shadows” is a mesmerizing afternoon of entertainment that guarantees audiences will never look at their own shadow in quite the same way again.
