Manual Cinema – A Christmas Carol

Mondavi Center Presenting Program

In this world premiere online event for audiences of all ages, world-renowned performance collective, Manual Cinema brings holiday cheer with a live-streamed visually stunning adaptation of Charles Dickens’ timeless A Christmas Carol.

An avowed holiday skeptic, Aunt Trudy has been recruited to present her late husband Joe’s annual Christmas Carol puppet show from the isolation of her Chicago apartment – over a Zoom call while the family celebrates Christmas Eve under lockdown. But as Trudy becomes more absorbed in her own version of the story, the puppets take on a life of their own, and the family’s call transforms into a stunning cinematic adaptation of Dickens’s classic ghost story. Manual Cinema’s Christmas Carol features hundreds of paper puppets, miniatures, silhouettes, and a live original score in an imaginative re-invention of a cherished holiday tradition.
