Shadow Puppet workshops with Mind of a Snail
Mind of a Snail
Mind of a Snail is a shadow puppetry duo currently based out of Vancouver BC. Since 2003, Chloé Ziner and Jessica Gabriel have been developing a multi-layered style of visual storytelling using overhead projectors as their main light source. Their performances play at the intersection of puppetry, visual arts, clowning & music. They have toured their award-winning shows across Canada, USA, and Taiwan. As artistic collaborators, they are interested in exploring beyond the boundaries of traditional theatre; and creating magical immersive experiences for their audiences and workshop participants.
