Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Most people see an overhead projector and get flashbacks to a seemingly long-forgotten biology class.
Set aside those fears when Mind of a Snail — Vancouverites Chloe Ziner and Jessica Gabriel — perform shadow puppetry with the help of the old-school equipment. Cool reverb sound effects, some psychedelic-sounding guitar, a rad attitude and audience participation makes this fun for kids.
Against Gravity is also a blast for grown-ups, especially those who’ve spent some time at the beer tent prior to the show. The duo was a hit at the Winnipeg Folk Festival campground a week ago and its opening night at the fringe was close to a sellout.
— Alan Small
From the Fringe program:
Gravity oppresses us all!
Part shadow puppet show and part live musical performance, Against Gravity is a hilarious and mind-bending journey from the highest highs to the lowest lows.
Expect beat-boxing, an overhead projector and crazy plot twists.
With Mind of a Snail's unique and interactive style of visual storytelling, you may experience delight and miraculous healing while bending the laws of nature!
Cast: Chloe Ziner, Jessica Gabriel
