The multimedia shadow puppetry masters of Manual Cinema are back. This season, they bring their performance of No Blue Memories, a work about the celebrated Chicago poet Gwendolyn Brooks (1917-2000), who won the Pulitzer Prize in 1950 for Annie Allen. Brooks, who supported herself as a typist for years, was the first African American to win the Pulitzer. By 16, she’d published 75 poems, and in her lifetime, more than 20 poetry books.

While participating in a shadow puppetry workshop with the group when they were here last in 2015, it struck me that this company’s precise craft and commitment contributes to realising each moment on the screen.
