Invisibilia

Invisibilia

Invisibilia is an NPR show that explores the invisible forces that shape human behavior. To launch the premiere of their second season, Manual Cinema was invited to bring one of their stories to life.

A few friends were enjoying a backyard dinner party when an uninvited guest appeared -- and things took a frightening turn. What do you do in the face of confrontation? Alix Spiegel, host of NPR's "Invisibilia" podcast, explains the concept of non-complementary behavior. And Manual Cinema brings it to life with a shadow puppet performance.

Premiered June 8, 2016

Produced by Invisibilia

Devised and Designed by Drew Dir & Julia Miller

Performed live at the NPR studios in Washington D.C. the event was live-streamed via Facebook Live on June 8th, 2016.
