Cloth choice for Shaddow Play


Recommended Posts


Dimension of cloth required: 7.2m x 4m (whole stage width)

Budget: as cheap as possible

Light source: Wide angle profile


Special Requirements

No seems in the central section (i.e. the part of the cloth that will be used for Shaddow Play).

Dense enough to stop lantern from being visible to audience (it is pointing at them after all)

Thin enough to give sharp shaddow (i.e. not muddying edges) and thin enough so as not to absorb too much light.



What materials are recommended for this purpose?


This is being a big headache at the moment.

Any help appreciated.
