Catapult
The Amazing Magic of Shadow Dancing
As seen on America’s Got Talent
- All new for 19-20 -

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 Battelstein (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. You won’t believe your eyes as you watch these incredible dancers become a mountain, a full size elephant, a helicopter, a house with a window and people inside the window.  You will never figure out how they do it, and you won’t know what they will make next – you will be surprised and delighted again and again. Audiences of all ages love what appear to be effortless transformations and applaud over and over as more and more unbelievable images appear.

A BRAND NEW PRODUCTION FOR 19-20

For the 19-20 Season, Catapult’s theatrical touring show will be a brand new production, mixing magical fan favorites from previous tours with a captivating new piece called “MouZart”, which tells the story of a musical mouse living in Mozart’s house.   MouZart was specially commissioned by the famous Mozart Festival in Salzburg, Austria, and will have its debut in January of 2019.

This amazing show has performed in over 300 cities in Europe, has toured China and the Middle East, and 17/18 and 18/19 tours throughout the United States.   The new production, featuring the delightful new MouZart piece will be ready to tour the U.S. in the Fall of 2019 and the Spring of 2020.   Master Classes and Community/Educational Workshops are available.
