Caws & Effect by Mind of a Snail (Vancouver, BC)
Feb 2, 3, 4 at 8 pm and Feb 5 at 3pm in the Mary Irwin Theatre
Crows are re-dreaming the world. Is the future all it’s cracked up to be?
Caws & Effect is a modern fable that explores the unexpected consequences that arise after a crow plants a magical seed. The story is told using handmade layered projections, puppetry, masks, and an original musical score. All aspects of the show are created and performed by two artists: Mind of a Snail’s Chloe Ziner & Jessica Gabriel. Their large-scale shadow theatre is quirky and beautiful, like an early National Film Board animation performed live before your eyes.
Since 2003, Ziner and Gabriel have been developing a multi-layered style of visual storytelling using overhead projectors as their main light source. Their performances combine originally crafted puppets, music, masks, and eclectic experiments in lighting and timing. Their “Compost-Modern” approach explores the interconnectedness between what is natural, what is artificial, and where everything blurs in between. Caws & Effect won Patron’s Pick at the Winnipeg, Toronto, and Vancouver Fringes, Producers Pick in London, and Best of Fest at the Edmonton Fringe.
