ROLLA, MO – Catapult
Catapult is, technically, a shadow dance company. What it really is: a theatrical art form that is an amazingly imaginative combination of dance, story-telling, and sculpture. Founded in 2009, Catapult catapulted to fame on Season 8 of the NBC-TV hit show “America’s Got Talent.”
Catapult is all about the human body and its ability to transform. The 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.
Catapult’s theatrical touring production, “Magic Shadows,” is packed with hundreds of shape transformations, full of humor and emotion, and includes eight fully realized stories told through music and shadows as well as six short shadow dance videos. Audiences leave this show dazed and happy, and they will never look at their own shadow the same way again!
