You Will Be Amazed at What This Shadow Dance Company Can Do

Catapult is, technically, a shadow dance company. What it really is, though, is a theatrical art form that offers an amazingly imaginative combination of dance, story-telling, and sculpture. Sound interesting? If so, don’t miss Catapult when they perform live on October 12th!

Founded in 2009 by Adam Battlestein (choreographer, Creative Director and Master Teaching Artist for Pilobolus Dance Theatre for 19 years), 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. 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.
