Manual Cinema

Ada/Ava

March 16–18, 2018

Drew Dir, director
Kyle Vegter and Ben Kauffman, sound and score

Shadow puppetry, live music, and immersive visual effects combine to tell the story of two elderly sister lighthouse keepers separated by death, in Manual Cinema's Ada/Ava. The Chicago-based performance collective's piece evokes the supernatural world of the New England gothic, where the living and the dead commingle in an exploration of melancholy, loneliness, and sisterly love.
