Silhouettes & symbolism
Live theater takes on a whole new meaning in Manual Cinema’s production “The End of TV,” presented by ArtsEmerson January 16-27 at the Emerson Paramount Theater. Void of dialogue, the show uses shadow puppetry, silhouettes, a live band and projection to tell the story of two women who were once workers at the same auto plant in a fictional Midwestern city. Flo, elderly and white, slips between reality and her television screen while Louise, young and black, struggles to make ends meet.
