Manual Cinema Adapting to Covid19

The Chicago-based interdisciplinary performance collective Manual Cinema is adapting to Covid19 this Christmas. Taking on the holiday classic Charles Dickens’s Christmas Carol with a live streaming adaption.

The premiere performances come on December 3-20, 2020. The shows will be performed live in Manual Cinema’s Chicago and broadcast via streaming to audiences.

The tech powering the stream will be Marquee TV a service some have called the Twitch of theater. Manual Cinema will use hundreds of paper puppets, miniatures, silhouettes, and an original to tell their version of the cherished classic in their imaginative way.
