The Paper Cinema's Odyssey

Tuesday, 14 February 2012

The Paper Cinema have interpreted Homer's The Odyssey in their first feature length film, described as "live animation for adults". Using a combination of hand-drawn paper puppets and live music, the performance depicts Odysseus's epic journey home after the fall of Troy.

Born from the music scene in Bournemouth, The Paper Cinema have been touring for 7 years and specialise in transforming literature into performance using illustration, paper-cutting and contemporary puppetry.
