'Manual Cinema is talent incarnate' (Time Out). 'This Chicago troupe is conjuring phantasms to die for in an unclassifiable story of spectral beauty' (New York Times). Manual Cinema uses hundreds of shadow puppets, overhead projectors, actors and live music to tell a story of the fantastic and supernatural. Bereaved of her twin sister Ava, septuagenarian Ada solitarily marks time in the patterns of a life built for two. A traveling carnival and a trip to a mirror maze plunge her into a journey across the thresholds of life and death.
