Naughty Shadows for Playful Grownups
What is this event?
A unique concept, this Shadow Puppetry Workshop will teach you to tell kinky, funny, sexy stories from your life or your imagination in a safer space for your darkest desires. We will be using the oldest form of storytelling used by mankind: Shadow Theater. That means we will be making props, using props, using our bodies, and working in teams to create characters and storylines, then putting them together on stage in a show. You will be guided by an expert in the art of Shadow Puppetry and we will provide you with all the materials needed.
We will use forbidden images, insinuations, sensations, emotions, and humor to give voice to our stories on stage, to create new characters, and maybe even to make social and political comments that have gone unspoken for too long. We bring you an evening to try something that has never been attempted before: to express yourself freely like never before. The games and stories will be guided by IMANAI. Don’t be afraid to step into the shadows!
🇷🇴 This Workshop will be held in Romanian.

How can you reach us?
There are many parking spaces in the area, especially in the evening or after 6 pm. The metro station at “1 Decembrie 1918” is the closest to us and it’s only 8 minutes away, on foot.
Take the small elevator (it’s behind the large stairs on the ground floor) to the 5th floor, where you will see the sign for InFLUX. One more flight of stairs up and you’re there. If mobility issues prevent you from climbing up a flight of stairs, you can take the large elevator, which will take you straight to our door, but that one is much slower.
Our phone number is +40723258105 and you can write to us on WhatsApp before the door closing time.

What are you bringing? What are you wearing?
There is no dress code for this event, so wear whatever makes you comfortable. You don’t need to bring anything other than your imagination and a little bit of vulnerability to us. We will provide all the necessary materials. But if there are objects that make beautiful shadows and are meaningful to you, please feel free to bring them along.
