Annenberg Center @ Home:Philadelphia Children’s Festival’s 35th Birthday - Online!

Even though we can’t be together for our Philadelphia Children’s Festival’s 35th birthday, we’re still celebrating from home with some of the best virtual content from this year’s performers. We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Children’s Festival. Please enjoy!

CATAPULT’s live shadow illusion show, Magic Shadows, as seen on season eight of America’s Got Talent, was one of the performances we were most looking forward to this year. Fortunately for us, as part of its #stayathome presentations, CATAPULT’s founder and director, Adam Battelstein, presents the full-length performance of the company’s Four Seasons, set to the renowned music by Vivaldi. Dance audiences might recognize Battelstein from his 19 years with Pilobolus.

After the performance, get on your feet for a Play Along Shadow tutorial with Anjuli Bhattacharyya, rehearsal director for CATAPULT. Follow step-by-step as Bhattacharyya recreates one of the frogs you see during the spring section of Four Seasons.
