Living Things Fest 2018: Double Bill - Shadow Puppetry & Dance Performances - Black Box Theatre
Double Bill Cabaret with Multiple Organism by Mind of Snail and a dance performance by Plastic Orchid Factory.
Mind of a Snail is a shadow puppetry duo currently based out of Vancouver BC. Since 2003, Chloé Ziner and Jessica Gabriel have been developing a multilayered style of visual storytelling using overhead projectors as their main light source. Their performances play at the intersection of visual arts, clowning & music. As artistic collaborators, they are interested in exploring beyond the boundaries of traditional theatre, and creating magical immersive experiences for their audiences. Mind of a Snail’s shadow theatre has been described as an early National Film Board animation created live before your eyes.
