In partnership with the Oxnard Performing Arts Center, we present the amazing magic of Dancing Shadows! As seen on America’s Got Talent, Catapult is technically, a shadow dance company. What it really is; a theatrical art form that is an amazingly imaginative combination of dance, storytelling, and sculpture. Founded in 2009, Catapult catapulted to fame on Season 8 of America’s Got Talent, earning their way to the finals of the NBC-TV hit show. Catapult is all about the human body and its ability to transform. Nine talented Catapult dancers work behind a screen to create seemingly impossible dancing shadow silhouettes of shapes from the world around us. You won’t believe your eyes as you watch these incredible dancers become a mountain, a full-size elephant, a helicopter, a house with a window and people inside the window. You will never figure out how they do it, and you won’t know what they will make next.
Grade Levels: All
Show Times: TBD
Duration: 60 minutes
Grimmz Fairy Tales | April 26, 2023
“Whatchoo ‘gon do?” This is the anthem of our play. “Step up and deliver or stand there and shiver? Be a taker or a giver, a watcher or a liver?” It’s easy to decide what others should do, but when it comes our time and opportunity to speak up for someone or stand beside someone, how will we act? In today’s modern times and with some of today’s music known for rhymes and storytelling and raw, intense content, our Will and Jay Grimmz want to get this stage hoppin’ and all of you stompin’ to a whole new world of fairy tales.
