Manual Cinema’s Christmas Carol

Experience a holiday classic like never before in Manual Cinema’s Christmas Carol! Through hundreds of paper puppets, miniatures, silhouettes, and a live original score, Chicago-based performance collective Manual Cinema takes on the Charles Dickens classic with an imaginative and visually stunning twist specifically created for the 2020 holiday season.
An avowed holiday skeptic, Aunt Trudy has been recruited to channel her late husband Joe’s famous Christmas cheer. From the isolation of her studio apartment, she will reconstruct his annual Christmas Carol puppet show over a Zoom call while the family celebrates Christmas Eve under lock-down. But as Trudy becomes more absorbed in her own version of the story, the puppets take on a life of their own, and the family’s call transforms into a stunning cinematic adaptation of Dickens’s classic ghost story.
Performed live in Chicago, we invite you to join us via livestream right from your home for this world-premiere event.
