MIND OF A SNAIL (Vancouver)
Caws & Effect
Crows are re-dreaming the world. Is the future all it’s cracked up to be?

Mind of a Snail’s new large scale shadow theatre production is an exploration of survival and extinction from a bird’s eye view. Funny, beautiful and unique, with handmade layered projections, puppetry, masks, and original music. The story can be seen as a modern fable, a tongue-in-cheek nature documentary, or the animated dream of a sleeping bird. In July, Caws & Effect premiered at the Winnipeg Fringe, winning “Patron’s Pick” with sold out shows and raven reviews!

★★★★★ “a gorgeous and wondrous work of art” CBC
★★★★1/2 “a whimsical live-action storybook that’s mesmerizing” Winnipeg Free Press
