Mementos Mori

Created by Manual Cinema

May 6 - June 14, 2020
Location: 325 Tudor Court | Get Directions ›
Theatre: Alexandra C. and John D. Nichols Theatre
When the persona of “Death” unexpectedly finds herself in California, she trades her scythe for an iPhone and wanders Hollywood, “swiping right” on loss and introducing unexpected connections into the otherwise disparate lives of a ghost, a young girl and an elderly projectionist. This ambitious show uses multiple puppets, seven overhead projectors, two cameras and three screens to create a live “movie” for the audience. Accompanied by four musicians playing an original score, along with live foley sound effects, MEMENTOS MORI is a rich mosaic of cinematic storytelling!
