It has been almost a year since Chicago-based theatre troupe Manual Cinema stunned Boston with their magical performance of Ada/Ava. This multimedia masterpiece, which showcased Manual Cinema’s unique use of shadow puppetry, live-action silhouettes and overhead projections, ran for a brief yet sold out weekend in January 2018. Audiences were “blown-away” by Manual Cinema’s ability to “create a new art form” and raved about the beauty and poignancy of the show. WBUR remarked, “In the nimble hands of Manual Cinema, the story is as precise as it is poetic — and utterly open in its execution.” After the successful run last January with Ada/Ava, ArtsEmerson is thrilled to welcome back Manual Cinema and their new production, The End of TV, at the Emerson Paramount Center JAN 16 – 27, 2019.
