When Death takes an unexpected holiday, an elderly film projectionist finds a new lease on life; a ghost explores the after-life with her iPhone; and a seven-year-old girl discovers her own mortality. A cast of six puppeteers use hundreds of paper puppets, seven overhead projectors, two cameras, and three screens to create a “live movie” in front of the audience. An interactive workshop with the performers will follow this performance.
Manual Cinema is presented in part through a consortium support from the MidAtlantic Arts Foundation.
