The Paper Cinema/England
An epic tale of betrayal, regicide, madness, storms and battles set in Scotland’s rugged and unforgiving landscape, Shakespeare’s tragedy is brought vividly to life. Beautifully drawn puppets, evocative music, atmospheric foley sound and dynamic cinematic projection combine to create a captivating silent film before your eyes.
With a charming and witty DIY-aesthetic The Paper Cinema creates magical productions which combine and unify the languages of animation, live music, film and theatre in a unique way. Intricate pen and ink illustrations are skilfully manipulated and layered in real-time in front of a live video camera and projected onto the big screen, generating memorable images and narrative which have delighted audiences around the world.
Following its critically acclaimed production THE PAPER CINEMA’S ODYSSEY, presented at manipulate in 2013 at Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh, this award-winning company returns to the festival with a powerful and inventive reimagining of Macbeth as a cautionary tale for our times.
