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.

Are you an artist who has played with the idea of integrating shadow puppetry into your work? Are you a teacher with an overhead projector who wants some ideas of how to use it in your classroom? Are you a curious and creative human who wants to learn how to make an animation that can be performed live?
