Manual Cinema's Christmas Carol
In this world premiere online event created for audiences of all ages, Chicago-based multimedia collective Manual Cinema takes on Charles Dickens’s holiday classic with a visually inventive adaptation made to broadcast directly to your home.
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 reconstructs his annual Christmas Carol puppet show — over a Zoom call while the family celebrates Christmas Eve under lockdown. 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.
OZ Arts Nashville presents two performances of this world premiere event on Saturday, December 19th, performed live by Manual Cinema from their Chicago studio in a socially distanced manner, and live streamed to audiences at home. In signature Manual Cinema fashion, hundreds of paper puppets, miniatures, silhouettes and a live original score will come together to tell an imaginative re-invention of this cherished holiday classic.
Tickets starting at $15
Ticket holders will receive an exclusive watch link via email prior to their selected performance time. The presentation will not be able to be viewed or replayed outside of the designated performance times.
