On Wednesday, September 18, 2013, at 7 p.m., join the RCAH in welcoming Manual Cinema in their shadow puppet performance of Lula Del Ray.
Manual Cinema recently performed at the New York International Fringe Festival and the Puppeteers of America (r)EVOLUTION Festival, where they won Best of the Festival and Best Design for their production of ADA/AVA.
All are welcome for this free event in the RCAH Theater, located on the terrace level of Snyder-Phillips Hall.
This Chicago-based shadow puppet performance company uses cinematic techniques to present sophisticated and moving tales with overhead projectors, shadows, and live performers and musicians.
Lula Del Ray is a lonely adolescent girl’s coming-of-age story set in the American Southwest and inspired by the music of Hank Williams, Roy Orbison, and Patsy Cline. It was developed at the University of Chicago in the Theater and Performance Studies Program where Manual Cinema served as Ensemble-in-Residence in 2012.
