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, by Adam Battlestein (Choreographer, Creative Director and Master Teaching Artist for Pilobus 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.
The talented Catapult dancers work behind a screen to create seemingly impossible dancing shadow images. Audiences of all ages love what appear to be effortless transformation and applaud over and over as more and more unbelievable images appear.
Catapult’s theatrical touring production is not just a series of shape transformation. The show is full of humor, emotion, and engaging stories told through music and shadows and in between the delightful stories, there are brief moments of poetry or humor which perfectly cleanse the palate and prepare the audience for their next shadow journey.
Audiences leave this show dazed and happy, and they will never look at their own shadow the same way again!
Tickets also available at 815 Commercial St. Emporia, KS or by calling (620) 343 – 6473
