Event Description

Lula Del Ray - Manual Cinema

Told almost entirely without dialogue,Lula del Rayis the story of a lonely adolescent girl who lives with her scientist mother on the outskirts of a vast satellite array.
Set in the mid-century American Southwest and inspired by the music of Hank Williams, Roy Orbison, and Patsy Cline, Lula del Ray is a mythic reinvention of the classic coming-of-age story. Lula Del Rayis performed with overhead projectors, shadow puppets, actors in silhouette and live music.“Dreamy in all sense of the word…fantastical…a Spectral Parade of images,” rave the New York Times! Lula del Ray was developed at the University of Chicago in the Theater and Performance Studies Program where Manual Cinema served as Ensemble-in-Residence.
