ADA/AVA is a contemporary shadow puppet show created by Drew Dir in collaboration with Julia Miller and Sarah Fornace with live music performed by Kyle Vegter and Ben Kauffman.

Bereaved of her twin sister Ava, septuagenarian Ada solitarily marks time in the patterns of a life built for two. However, a traveling carnival and a trip to a mirror maze plunges her into a journey across the thresholds of life and death.

Set in a landscape of the New England gothic, Ada/Ava uses a story of the fantastic and super natural to explore mourning and melancholy, self and other.
