Manual Cinema’s Christmas Carol
Friday, December 10, 2021 – Saturday, December 11, 2021 EST
Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol remains a holiday staple, its empathetic idea of a life well lived indelibly woven into our cultural fabric. In virtual performances from its Chicago studio, the visionary performance collective Manual Cinema reimagines this timeless tale for today, blending narrative enchantment with spot-on commentary about contemporary life. Using more than 100 paper puppets, an original musical score, dramatic lighting and a unique cast of performers, this story of Ebenezer Scrooge will transcend your screen. Convocations is proud to reprise this critically acclaimed 2020 performance filled with imagery that ranges from transfixing to touching and a show-within-a-show idea that introduces a clever twist on this cherished classic. This is a free Convos gift to you for the holidays!
