In The Shadows, Part 2 – Solo Show

In Episode 5 Lola & The Poets is back with the second solo show on the concept of the shadow, number two of the three shows I plan on this topic. This one is on the shadow-patterning of communications, the chiaroscuro of social media, and the idea of the doppelgänger, our shadow twin. The episode arrives, as is always the case with alchemical brews, just on time, while the entire world is transferred online. Give it a spin.
