• Meet SALOME Shadow Designer Clea Minaker

    By COC Staff


    Opening February 3, Richard Strauss’ Salome brings its timeless thrills to the COC stage for the first time since 2013! Under the direction of Atom Egoyan, the show fuses opera, theatre, dance, shadow puppetry and film into a mesmerizing visual spectacle, punctuated by Strauss’ groundbreaking score. Puppetry artist and interdisciplinary creator Clea Minaker returns to the show—a key creative talent first recruited by Egoyan after witnessing her shadow puppetry at a Feist concert—“I was excited by her work and loved what she was able to do with storytelling in a very childlike yet immediately identifiable way.”

    We asked Clea about her Salome reunion, the place of shadow puppetry in theatre, and what to expect from this year’s staging. Read on to hear from the artist herself!
