Manual Cinema, The End of TV
Using vintage overhead projectors, multiple screens, puppets, actors, live-feed cameras, multichannel sound design, and a live music ensemble, Manual Cinema transforms the experience of attending the movies into an immersive event created right before your eyes. The End of TV explores the two sides of the American Dream—its technicolor promise through TV advertising, and its failure witnessed in industrial decline. Stay to meet the performers on stage after the show. “This Chicago troupe is conjuring phantasms to die for.…”—New York Times. Tickets: $22/16/10/6
The End of TV was made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Theater Project, with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
