Glass Eye Shadow Pictures is a shadow theatre company based in Highland, NY. The company is founded on the collaborations of Adam Lipsky, music-director, musician and composer and Alisa Javits, creative-director, artist and fabricator. Many of their projects include collaborations with other artists and musicians. Their shadow performances are projected manually in large open spaces or on a large free-standing screen. Glass Eye Shadow Pictures creates immersive, cinematic live shadow performances that are accompanied by live score and sound design.
Since the founding of the group in 2013, Glass Eye Shadow Pictures has performed at large and small venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, (where they were formerly based), as well as throughout the U.S. and Canada. During recent years, they performed in the Santa Cruz Fringe Festival, Victoria (British Columbia) Fringe Festival and Calgary (Alberta) Fringe Festival. They hosted and performed at the centennial celebration of the Capawock Theater, in Tisbury, MA in 2013. In 2014, they hosted their “Spring Shadow Series” in the San Francisco Bay Area, and toured throughout the northwestern states. They are multiple-time recipients of the Zellerbach Community Arts Grant and the Bill Graham Supporting Foundation Grant. In November 2016, they were commissioned by the Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theater for a full schedule of youth performances. In May 2017, they were commissioned by the Common Grounds Festival in San Francisco to present an interactive, outdoor, public, two-day performance.
