When I was a little girl, I remember watching "Karagoz and Hacivat" http://www.karagoz.net/english/shadowplay.htm a traditional Turkish puppets shadow play. About a month ago I heard about Medea Awards http://www.medea-awards.com/ and went back to my childhood... I made a small research on how it is performed and decided on making the project "Fellow Shadow Spider Incy Wincy Theatre" for medea-awards. First, I chose the nursery rhyme "Incy Wincy" among hundreds on my mind and then I determined the elements in the play; a spider (for sure!), a house with a water spout, a smiling sun and rain clouds. Then I found some pictures from the internet that will fit to the elements in the play and I drew them (considering the copy rights I didn't copy them directly, but drew by looking at the pictures- inspiration:)) and then copied them to transparent paper. After copying, my students helped me coloring and cutting them. As a screen I used tracing paper. I set a spotlight behind the tracing paper and recorded the play. To move the puppets easily, I used wooden sticks. Again considering the copyrights, two colleagues (Ezgi Ozbey & Burak Usanmaz) played the music and I sang the song. It was more than fun! We laughed so much during the recording of the rhyme. As a final touch, I put the music and the video together on blogspot and there it was! http://fellowshadow.blogspot.com/
