Head in the Cloud

Manual Cinema created Head in the Cloud for Pop-Up Magazine, a “live magazine” presenting never-heard-before true stories in front of audiences across the country. The piece was created in collaboration with Jenna Wortham (New York Times Magazine staff writer), and combines shadow puppetry, live narration and an original score to tell the story of a man coping with long-term amnesia by “outsourcing” his memories to his smart phone.

Performed with the Pop-Up live tour in 2015

Produced by Pop-Up Magazine
Written and Narrated by Jenna Wortham
