Shadow puppetry evolves with 'Manual Cinema'


Shadow puppets on the radio? Now that’s something you don’t “hear” everyday, but here at Current State we thought we'd give it a try.

Manual Cinema is a a Chicago based shadow puppet ensemble. The group recently performed at the New York International Fringe Festival and at the Puppeteers of America (r)EVOLUTION Festival, where they won multiple awards.  They are in East Lansing this week, where they will be visiting the Residential College of Arts and Humanities for a performance and workshop.

Julia Miller and Sarah Fornace are co-artistic directors and a part of Manual Cinema's visual team. They stopped by to talk about their unique performance art.
