Welcome to Indigo Moon Theatre, a leading children’s shadow puppet theatre company that has toured nationally and internationally to theatres, festivals and schools since 2001. Our work combines traditions, techniques and styles from around the world, particularly from Europe and Indonesia. Our shows often carry important, transferrable messages about the world around us.
Merging intricate colourful design, immersive original music, engaging storytelling, and a combination of marionettes, rod puppets, live acting and shadow theatre – Indigo Moon Theatre brings new life to classic tales, such as Jungle Book, Aladdin and Alice & the White Rabbit, as well as creating our own original work. We have enjoyed hundreds of performances to date, as well as taking commissions for commercial ventures including BBC Two’s Peaky Blinders and the pop band Take That. We also run educational workshops for children and adults.
Indigo Moon Theatre is based in Hull, East Yorkshire, at Scrapstore Studios, Hull where we created a studio theatre and workshop space in 2012.
