Manual Cinema Workshop

Saturday | October 6 | 6:00-8:00pm
Page Theatre | Saint Mary’s University

This hands-on workshop focuses on Manual Cinema‘s approach to storytelling and our “live cinema” techniques. The workshop begins with an overview of how the company creates shows from story idea to full production. Then the workshop participants will get on their feet at the overhead projectors and behind the screens to deconstruct and stage a short sequence from a Manual Cinema show in order to learn the puppetry techniques and cinematic language that the company has invented. Participants will then have an opportunity to devise short, narrative shows of their own using the company’s equipment and puppets. The workshop ends with performances (by the participants) followed by discussion and critique.

No experience is necessary to participate in this workshop, however registration is required. Please visit to register.
