    What a show! What a clever way to use simple tools. The music and sound effects were haunting and beautiful too.

    Absolute magic. These performers have created an entirely new art form. My partner and I were stunned by the beauty and poignancy of the show and we are recommending it to all our friends. Bravo to this talented, incredibly creative troupe.

    Hello: I agree with all the raves–I think we hunger at times for something different, and definitely poignant. I am wondering (a lot) how the writing happened, the story line, the macabre haunting focus on death. I thought the auteur would appear on stage as an individual–not at all. This is what I call mind-blowing!

    So clever and creative. The choreography of both bodies and puppets moving about the stage….conveying a deeply moving story…superb.
    Also, hauntingly beautiful music!

    I saw the show with my twin, and we thought the show did a great job of capturing the special bond twins share in a magical way.

    You quickly forget the people and devices and become immersed in the poignant longing of loss. Tears quickly came within the first few minutes and I was lost in the sadness, and shared the grief of the silhouette in a way that I don’t believe I would have with the distractions of a human face.

    My twin sister and I were at Sundays performance and we both loved it! It was compelling, sad and awesome all in one!! Great performance by a group of very talented young people and so glad we were there!! We even had our picture taken out side by a young man who was involved with the show some how,and he was going to show our pic to the staff when we told him we were twins!!

    This was such a wonderful show! I attended the performance FOUR times and each time discovered something new. I invited friends to join me and everyone agreed Manual Cinema needs to return to Boston. I hope ArtsEmerson is in negotiations NOW to make sure Manual Cinema makes it to New England again…soon!

    My husband and I were awe-struck at the use of projections, sound effect, and the themes in the story. It was a truly magical and captivating experience and I look forward to attending many more productions by Manual Cinema. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!
