Catapult and the ONU Dance Company perform at Homecoming Sept. 23

Catapult is, technically, a shadow dance company. What it really is: a theatrical art form that is an amazingly imaginative combination of dance, story-telling, and sculpture. 

 Founded in 2009, by Adam Battlestein (choreographer, Creative Director and Master Teaching Artist for Pilobolus Dance Theatre for 19 years), Catapult catapulted to fame on Season 8 of America’s Got Talent, earning their way to the finals of the NBC-TV hit show.

Catapult is all about the human body and its ability to transform. 

The talented Catapult dancers work behind a screen to create seemingly impossible dancing shadow silhouettes of shapes from the world around us. For example, dancers become a mountain, a full size elephant, a helicopter, a house with a window and people inside the window.

Catapult’s “Magic Shadows” show is packed with hundreds of shape transformations, and it is full of humor, emotion, and engaging stories. 

There are 8 stories told through music and shadows and 6 short shadow dance videos which play between the live dances – brief moments of poetry or humor.

Tickets go on sale this summer. Email boxoffice@onu.edu to receive a reminder when ticket sales begin.
