Gothic show by Manual Cinema
    2017-September-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

U.S. Manual Cinema will present the “Ada/Ava” stage show in Shenzhen in November.

Mourning the death of her twin sister Ava, bereaved septuagenarian Ada solitarily marks time in the patterns of a life built for two. However, a traveling carnival and a trip into a mirror maze plunges her into a journey across the thresholds of life and death. Set in a New England Gothic landscape, “Ada/Ava” tells a story of the fantastical and supernatural to explore mourning and melancholy, self and others.

Premiered in 2013, the charming Gothic show is an exquisitely precise piece of visual storytelling that makes use of several overhead projectors, more than 400 puppets and actors, live music and a sound-scape that is attuned to every emotional nuance in the story. The show contains both the simplest of shadow puppetry and the sophistication of a modern movie, and provides the shared experience that theater typically delivers.

Manual Cinema is a performance collective, design studio and film production company founded in 2010. It combines handmade shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques and innovative sound and music to create immersive visual stories for stage and screen. Using vintage overhead projectors, multiple screens, puppets, actors, live feed cameras, multi-channel sound design and a live music ensemble, Manual Cinema transforms the experience of attending the cinema and imbues it with liveliness, ingenuity and theatricality.
