Lula del Ray
Sunday, Jan. 31 at 2PM and 7PM
Tickets: $10/2PM & $20/7PM
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. Performed with overhead projectors, shadow puppets, actors in silhouette, and live music; told almost entirely without dialogue, Lula del Ray is the story of a lonely adolescent girl who lives with her mother on the outskirts of a vast satellite array in the middle of the desert. After a chance encounter over the radio, Lula becomes obsessed with a soulful country music duo, the Baden Brothers. Inspired by their music, she runs away from home and into a world of danger, deception, and disappointment.
Whenever possible, after each performance Manual Cinema invites the audience onto the stage to talk
with the artists, get their hands on some of the puppets, and see how our work is made up close.
