Love, loss, and creation merge in unexpected ways in this thrilling classic gothic tale conceived by Manual Cinema. Stories of Mary Shelley, Victor Frankenstein, and his Monster expose how the forces of family, community, and education shape personhood—or destroy it by their absence. Internationally-renowned multimedia company Manual Cinema stitches together the classic story of FRANKENSTEIN with Mary Shelley’s own biography to create an unexpected story about the beauty and horror of creation. Manual Cinema combines handmade shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques, and innovative sound and music to create immersive visual stories for stage and screen.

More information about the performance can be found here.

a canary torsi | Yanira Castro – “Last Audience”

Sat, Jan 5, 2019, 5-5:45pm
work-in-progress showing at New York Live Arts
219 West 19th St, btwn 7 & 8 aves

Reserve here

“Last Audience” is the newest work by the Bessie-award-winning collaborative group, a canary torsi. “Last Audience” is an immersive performance where audience members build and perform the work new, for each performance. “Last Audience” utilizes the structure of a traditional requiem mass as the inspiration to develop the performance “score” for each audience. Greetings, processions, and requests for mercy, peace, and liberation are the taking-off point for scores that use movement, environment, and sound. Imagined as a ritual enacted specifically and uniquely with and for each audience, Castro sees “Last Audience” as a live laboratory for the work of conjuring.
