Freespace at Taikoo Place - Lula del Ray

Event Closed

More Details

Performing with overhead projectors, shadow puppets, actors in silhouette, live music and cinematic techniques, the talented crew of Manual Cinema creates a unique and entrancing hybrid form of live film.

Told almost entirely without dialogue, Lula del Ray recounts the story of a lonely adolescent girl growing up with her mother in an isolated trailer on the edge of a vast, desert satellite field. One night, while watching stars in the dark sky, she hears the songs of the soulful country duo The Baden Brothers on the radio. Obsessed by their music, she runs away from home, heading to the city and into a world of danger, deception and disappointment. Set in the American Southwest of the 1950s, the original, feature-length, live cinematic shadow puppet show Lula del Ray is a mythic reinvention of the classic coming-of-age story, inspired by the imagery of old films and featuring a live score inspired by the music of Hank Williams, Roy Orbison, and Patsy Cline.
