WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Raging storms and supernatural forces prevail over one man's almighty quest to get home. Immerse yourself in a journey through the high seas, soak up the adventure and encounter danger and exhilaration. The Paper Cinema have performed their unique combination of live animation and originally scored music, nationally and internationally since 2004, and to great acclaim. This is Homer's Odyssey, a cornerstone of literature, vividly told through beautiful illustration and masterful puppetry. Cinematic projection and cunning tricks transform a suitcase full of cut-out paper puppets into an array of living characters and striking landscapes. A silent film is created before your eyes, set to a captivating live score from exceptional musicians. Running time: 1hr 15mins. Age recommendation: 14+

Part of the Bristol Festival of Puppetry
