Caws & Effect

Mind of a Snail’s large-scale shadow 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.

A modern fable, a tongue-in-cheek nature documentary, the animated dream of a sleeping bird—in 2014, Caws & Effect won Patrons Pick at the Winnipeg Fringe and Pick of the Fringe at the Vancouver Fringe Festival. Their latest show, Multiple Organism, won a 2018 Jessie Richardson Theatre Award, Critic’s Choice for Innovation.
