Caws and Effect Review

By Ezekiel McAdams

                From Mind of a Snail in Vancouver, comes a shadow puppet adventure that is unlike anything else you will see at the Fringe.

                Written, directed and performed by Chloé Ziner and Jessica Gabriel, Caws tells the story of a cause and effect situation involving the crows, earthworms and even nature.

                This play is beautifully designed  from the direction to the puppet to the narrative  Ziner and Gabriel are able to transport the audience into this world with the aid of clever visuals and puppets accompanied by a haunting soundtrack that envelops into a unique experience.

                The play moves along at a very bisque pace after an intro from Ziner and Gabriel as their characters with crow masks on. The characters they created have their own language and dialogue, including lots of puns as the play goes head first into the surreal.

                Special mentions goes to the costumes, puppets and art that were created for this production.

                This is one of the best shows you'll see at the Fringe because quite frankly, it's unlike anything you'll ever see.
