Fighting Projected Shadows Is Nothing Less Than Heart Stopping

I am not really sure how to categorize this video, as it is pretty multidisciplinary, touching no projection, dance and animation. But since we are dealing with projection this month, I wanted to share it.

There is very little information about this show in the webs:
