SCREEN DOOR is a collective of theatre and film enthusiasts who produce original Live Movies around Chicago. They are the recipients of the 2012 Edes Prize for Emerging Artists.
NIGHT OF THE MAGICIAN is SCREEN DOOR’s first feature length Live Movie. It tells the story of Matilda, a young woman who arrives in a post-industrial factory town in search of her missing brother. As she wanders the streets looking for answers, she meets several of the town’s odd residents — and slowly discovers the terrible secrets that haunt them. A gothic horror tale about the relationship between the natural and manmade world, NIGHT OF THE MAGICIAN continues SCREEN DOOR’s commitment to telling original, genre-based stories in innovative, mixed-media formats.
PLUS! Following the show, there will be live music from John Cicora!
JUSTIN SAYS: By utilizing a mix of film, theater, live music and shadow puppetry SCREEN DOOR unfolds a compelling (and delightfully slow-burning) mystery full of strange characters and bizarre twists that would be the envy of David Lynch and Kiyoshi Kurosawa. (Or does *anyone* remember PUSH, NV? ‘Cause that’s all I could think of throughout this show, and I would really love to see it again.) Few shows strive to be this innovative *and* still hit anywhere close to their mark. NIGHT OF THE MAGICIAN is the exception, and this impressive first effort deserves a following. Do not miss!
