What you'll do

Shadow theater, an ancient art form that casts shadows on a backlit screen to wondrous effect, is truly the "Original Screen Time".

Firelight team building sessions invite team members to work collaboratively to create interactive shadow theater.

Throughout the event, participants experience the creative process, problem-solving, flexibility, and the give-and-take of successful partnerships. And of course, a good dose of laughter and humor ensures a memorable experience for all. See you in the land of shadows...

Team members will make a shadow puppet stage (from items found in their kitchens!), create puppets, and then perform together!

Daniel was fantastic and the storytelling, history, and creative nature of the exercise was so so fun! My team had a great time participating and got us perfectly in the mood for Halloween spooky October.




The offsite was fun and made you use your creative senses!
