We do not usually associate the ancient art form of shadow puppetry with little people, but the two fit each other perfectly in the shadow puppetry performing troupe The Little Ants.
The members of the unique crew are affected by dwarfism. Their average age is 25 and their average height is 1.28 meters. Despite what some might see as a physical disadvantage, they are able to tackle the challenges to acquire the skill and perform in front of big audiences like any other puppeteers.
