One of the most beautiful, moving, and technically impressive readings yet to occur at Brain Frame, Sara Drake's interpretation of The Romance of the Tiger Lady, a shadow-play based on a Cambodian comic book by Im Sokha about the coming of age of a were-tiger anti-heroine, which she performed with the aide of puppeteers Simon Allen, Ben Bertin, and Jenna Caravello, and live musical accompaniment by Wyatt Grant, can be seen in this documentation from Brain Frame 5 on March 23rd, 2012. Watch it.

Sara Drake executes a transcendent shadow-puppet play, based on a Cambodian comic book about a female were-tiger, at Brain Frame 5 on March 23rd, 2012. Sara cut and colored her puppets to be manipulated on two overhead projectors, yielding a stunningly cinematic result. Assisting Sara in puppeteering were Jenna Caravello, Simon Allen, and Ben Bertin, with Wyatt Grant in front of the screen creating a live, looping, ambient guitar sountrack.
