Chicago Humanities Festival and Mana Contemporary Chicago Present: Manual Cinema: My Soul's Shadow

 
A Manual Cinema production is a choreographic feat. Puppeteers move seamlessly from projector to projector, shadow puppets glide across large screens, encountering the live actors who bound between, doffing a cap here, lighting a cigarette there, as music swells from the chamber orchestra. At turns moody and bittersweet, exquisite and melancholic, their latest production embraces language in celebration of Spanish poet Federico García Lorca. My Soul’s Shadow is a bilingual, immersive audio-visual installation that invites audiences to encounter Lorca’s elegiac verse anew, through projections and live, original music.

This program is presented as part of the annual Karla Scherer Endowed Series for the University of Chicago. This program is presented in partnership with Mana Contemporary Chicago.
