Crows are re-dreaming the world. Is the future all it’s cracked up to be?
This modern fable is told using handmade layered projections, puppetry, masks, and an original musical score. Mind of a Snail’s large scale shadow puppetry is quirky, colourful and beautiful, like early animation performed live before your eyes.
The critics are RAVEN!
★★★★★ “a gorgeous and wondrous work of art” -CBC
★★★★★ “a fantastical, unique experience” -Torontoist
★★★★★ “Calling it shadow puppetry doesn’t do this incredible show justice” -Edmonton Sun
★★★★★ “it’s stunning and hilarious to witness the wizardry these two artists spin with such simple elements” -Vue Weekly
“Through layered cut-paper projections, puppetry, masks and an original score, Chloé Ziner and Jessica Gabriel create a whimsical live-action storybook that’s mesmerizing. In their hands, craft materials become enterprising earthworms and beating crows wings and starry galaxies and post-apocalyptic cityscapes strewn with garbage. The ingenuity and artistry on display is breathtaking.” -Winnipeg Free Press
