A gothic melodrama, a puppet show, a slide show, a shadow play set to live jazz, and a behind-the-scenes look at how the magic is made: Ada/Ava is all that and more. In a CGI era, the Manual Cinema artists' collective uses paper cutouts, transparencies, and overhead projectors to tell a haunting tale of elderly twins separated by death- or perhaps not. The New York Times wrote Ada/Ava is "an unclassifiable story of spectral beauty."


PRE-SHOW TALK: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 6:30 PM

Aileen Robinson, a Stanford expert in the history of stage technologies and illusionism, discusses the work of Manual Cinema and the history behind its stunning effects.

Program

  • The program will last approximately one hour and will be performed without intermission.
