Manual Cinema's Christmas Carol
December 12, 2020
Streamed Event at 3pm & 7pm
Join us for the world premiere online event created for audiences of all ages! Manual Cinema brings to life Charles Dickens’ holiday classic with an inventive adaptation made specifically for streaming rather than live performance.
An avowed holiday skeptic, Aunt Trudy has been recruited to channel her late husband Joe’s famous Christmas cheer. From the isolation of her studio apartment, she reconstructs his annual Christmas Carol puppet show – over a Zoom call while the family celebrates Christmas Eve during a pandemic. But as Trudy becomes more absorbed in her own version of the story, the puppets take on a life of their own and the family’s call transforms into a stunning cinematic recreation of this most classic story.
There will be a post performance Q&A “Behind the Scenes with a Puppeteer” following the 7:00 p.m. performance only.
