Beguiling pen and ink drawings are magically brought to life in real time by two puppeteers and a projector to create a unique, animated film. They are joined by a hugely talented ensemble of multi-instrumentalists (including violin, guitar, musical saw and live looping) performing the atmospheric soundtrack live on stage.
Discover what happened when the Devil came to Cornwall, strange happenings in a bewitched house in Devon, ghostly apparitions in Shropshire and a headless rider in Savernake Forest, Wiltshire.
Ghost Stories is The Paper Cinemas latest show combining the languages of animation, music, film and theatre to create something truly unique and magical. Previous shows include Macbeth and The Odyssey.
Made for adults but suitable for ages 8+
The pleasure here is not just that the animations are both sinister and enchanting, or that the wonderful music gives the whole thing the feel of a quirky silent movie, but also that you can see how the show is being made right before your eyes. The mechanics are fully revealed, and being able to observe the process in no way diminishes what you see but rather enhances it.
Ingenious and beautiful Bound to delight.
Any production by this small British company is bound to be something special.THE TIMES
