The Paper Cinema's


Thursday 19th – Saturday 21st April, 2018

Patrick Studio | 19:00 - 20:15

Shakespeare's tale of supernatural prophecy and blood-soaked intrigue may be familiar, but we'll bet you've never seen it rendered with paper cut-outs.

A hugely popular attraction at past Flatpacks, Paper Cinema have pioneered a unique form of live animation which combines puppetry, onstage video and live music to immerse the audience into a two-dimensional world. After a joyous take on The Odyssey which toured the globe (including Flatpack 2015), illustrator Nic Rawling and his merrie band have turned their hand to the Scottish play. Shakespeare may be famed for his language, but by stripping the tragedy down to action and emotion Paper Cinema have forged a compelling and sometimes psychedelic experience. Acclaimed on its Edinburgh debut last summer, this is one of the first opportunities to catch Macbeth on the road.
