"TO DESCRIBE MANUAL CINEMA AS JUST A SHADOW PUPPET SHOW IS TO SAY THAT PIXAR MAKES CARTOONS" - CHICAGO TRIBUNE

 

Celebrated Chicago-based company Manual Cinema presents an original piece commissioned by O, Miami: My Soul's Shadow, an immersive evening of live, cinematic shadow puppetry based on the world of twentieth-century Spanish poet Federico García Lorca.

Using hundreds of paper shadow puppets, six old-school overhead projectors, and an original score performed live by the chamber ensemble Nu Deco Ensemble, Manual Cinema transform a Little River // Miami warehouse dock through light and shadow into a fantastic landscape inspired by Lorca's surreal imagination.

Before the performance, audience members interact with art installations of light, shadow, and sound in an intimate outdoor courtyard.
