Student Matinee: Manual Cinema: Ada/Ava Featuring Aaron David Miller, organist (Livestream)
February 29, 2024-March 8, 2024
“To describe Manual Cinema as just a shadow puppet show is to say Pixar makes cartoons” (Chicago Tribune). The collective imaginatively combines shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques, sound effects, and live organ music in a haunting performance like nothing you’ve ever seen. Bereaved of her twin sister Ava, septuagenarian Ada solitarily marks time until a carnival—and a visit to the mirror maze—plunges her into a gothic New England journey. The matinee will include a shadow puppetry Show & Tell and an opportunity to ask questions to the artists!
