Manual Cinema

Manual CinemaThe Magic City

Immersive, innovative, intimate, ingenius—everywhere they go, this Chicago troupe wins rave reviews. They come to VPAC following debuts in Australia, France, and Germany. Manual Cinema combines the old and the new, from shadows created on vintage projectors to innovative multi-media storytelling with multiple screens and live cameras. The Magic City is a loose retelling of Edith Nesbit’s 1910 novel about a young girl, Philomena, who escapes a difficult childhood by creating an imaginative world in a secluded attic. Philomena’s journey inspires her to accept a new definition of what family can be. There’s no age limit on imagination in this striking new shadow puppet performance. Ben Brantley describes their work in the New York Times, “...a spectral parade of fantastical images.”
