We’re getting some great feedback on me and my shadow.  Above is a ‘vox pops’ video that the National Theatre put together, and below are a small selection of comments from the visitor’s book in London..

“It’s fantastic to be connected with other people at the same time!!”

“The whole world should be connected like this, amazing”

“Glittering and magical – Like an electrical heaven”

“Very different experience, the shadows are brill”

“An amazing experience, almost out of body. It was fascinating to see what I was doing”

“Thank you for this amazing and impressive moment”

“Magical, beautiful, futuristic and brilliant. I danced like nobody was watching… you should do the same… always”

“It was fun to dance and move like a maniac – and cause chaos in a digital dimension. Well done”

“An experience of the future, fantastic!”

“It’s really interesting to see how people leave their traces in a virtual world and interact regardless of language or location”

There’s also been lots of press for the project.  Here’s a selection of what can be found online:

  1. Hi, I’ve uploaded a video I took of Me and My Shadow when it was at the National Theatre; it’s here: http://youtu.be/UEemgawPGR0 Is that ok? Please let me know if you want me to change what I’ve written on that YouTube page, or if you want me to take it down. You can contact me on twitter @ishabluebell or on Facebook.
