Eleanor Glover- Recorded performance of 'The Constant Tin Soldier'

This is an animation of the performance I went to see at the Shadowplay event. I think Eleanor Glover's work is stunning and I especially like the idea of presenting a fairytale as a contemporary puppet shadow play performance. I think she gave herself more leeway to put her own personal stamp on the story and it also got the viewers more involved and kept all of our attention. I love the idea of the puppet show, Eleanor mentioned that 'Hans Christian Andersen liked to put on his own puppet shows' and because she was illustrating one of his tales, I thought it was really appropriate.
