4Trains / audio excerpts


Set in the American wilderness as 19th-century industrialization looms, 4TRAINS explores the theme of the railroad as it relates to the destruction of the environment and the imagination. Working behind screen and on-stage, Christine Marie and her ensemble of actors, artists, and dancers construct live shadow theater reminiscent of silent-era cinema and enhanced by hand-built lighting that uses 3D stereoscopic technology.

Created and Directed by Christine Marie
