On Friday, February 23, 2018 Performance collective Manual Cinema created live film on stage, combining cinematic techniques, theatricality, handmade shadow puppetry, innovative sound, and live music. The Connecticut premiere of Ada/Ava (2013) used a story of the fantastic and supernatural to explore mourning and melancholy, self and other. Bereaved of her twin sister Ava, septuagenarian Ada solitarily marks time until a traveling carnival and a trip to a mirror maze plunges her into a journey across the thresholds of life and death.
