Video: Get Your Tissues Before Watching This Shadow Dance

Hungarian theater group, "Attraction," wows audience on Britain’s Got Talent.

This was the first audition for Britain’s Got Talent 2013 by Hungarian shadow theater group, Attraction. The group first landed on the world stage after their performance for the 2012 Olympics in London. They soon went on to win the 7th season of Britain’s Got Talent. Made up of 12 performers, they’re based in Budapest. Shadow theater has a long history — usually performed with puppets. Attraction performers use their own bodies to create stories. This one is true.
