CAWS & EFFECT by Canadian Shadow Puppet Troupe, Mind of a Snail, will come to Portland for ONE weekend only July 6 - 8 @ the Headwaters Theater!  Stay tuned for ticket info and show times. 

Large-scale shadow puppet theatre from a birds eye view. Crows are re-dreaming the world. Is the future all it's cracked up to be? This modern fable is told using handmade layered projections, puppetry, masks, and an original musical score. Mind of a Snail's large scale shadow puppetry is quirky, colorful and beautiful, like early animation performed live before your eyes.
