The shadow theater

The shadow theater

The shadow theater is one of the oldest types of theater performance. [1]

The shadow theater is played mainly with translucent painted images, usually on toppings but also on leather and other translucent materials, the so-called figures. The karaoke player handles the figures in front of a white screen, usually a stretched white sheet (burgundy), illuminated from behind. Thus, the viewer easily distinguishes the contours of the images or, depending on their construction, also distinguishes the colors.

For the handling of figures, special tongs need to be placed at crucial points and offer a sense of flexibility and liveliness. Many times the performance is accompanied by music from a live orchestra to make it nicer.

Karagkiozis is a central character of the traditional Greek and Turkish shadow theater, which often called by the name of the protagonist. In Turkish called Karagöz means Mavromatis.
