Shadows & Song : A night of music and crankies!
with joint performances by Ali Dineen, Marlee Miller and Kristine White
Marlee Miller is abundantly thrilled to be collaborating with her dearest friend Ali Dineen. Marlee makes art in many forms. She is a black queer performer, dramaturg, puppeteer based in Brooklyn. She draws inspiration for her work from love, dreams, social justice, and the process of exploring identity. She also attributes a large part of her artistic influence to dancing with her chosen family, writing her signature love letters, Nikki Giovanni, and crying while drinking wine in the shower at 2am. She is currently working on a children’s puppet show with Drama of Works, as well as writing a manuscript in which she responds to the work of Audre Lorde
Kristine White is a visual artist, puppeteer, and singer from Toronto, Ontario. She is compelled by stories that are timeless and universal, especially those that have been passed down by oral and musical traditions.
“Casting Shadows” is a series of live shadow animations created to illustrate interpretations of old Irish, English, and early settler-American folk ballads, sung by Kristine and accompanying musicians.
