The warm glow of the projected image invites us to in-between worlds. During this cinematic celebration, now an annual favorite, the passive act of watching turns to listening, peering, touching, and interacting as Exploratorium Cinema Arts takes over museum spaces to provide experiences—both on and off the screen—created by artists and filmmakers from the Bay Area and beyond.

In Praise of Shadows: Live Shadow Puppetry, Opera, and Found Film Projection
With Facing West Shadow Opera
9:00 p.m. | Barbro and Bernard Osher West Gallery, Kanbar Forum

In Praise of Shadows is a handcrafted, multisensory immersion into a key moment in the evolution of the American West. Drawing inspiration from the book Walt Whitman and the Opera, the piece explores Whitman’s obsession with the traveling operas of the Wild West in the Gold Rush era. A dense and holistic visual landscape made from projected video, animation, and shadow theater is paired with live operatic voice and cello to create a unique and poetic examination of local history.

Facing West Shadow Opera is a collective of artists, filmmakers, and musicians hybridizing art forms to create unique performances, each akin to a live graphic novel with euphoria-inducing live chamber music. facingwestshadowtheatre.wordpress.com
