An Introduction to Performing Live Animation with The Paper Cinema

Little Angel Theatre in association with London International Mime Festival
Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th January 2018

About the Workshop
This multidisciplinary workshop aims to give participants an introduction to some of the techniques used by The Paper Cinema. Participants will learn the basics of designing puppets, narrative and storyboarding, puppet manipulation and performance, making their own piece in groups during the course of the session.  At the end of the session, there will be a Q&A with the artists, discussing the fine points of the process.

This course is for anyone interested in learning more about this unique approach to making and performing live animation. All levels of experience welcome.

About the Company
Founded in 2004 by Nicholas Rawling with Imogen Charleston and Christopher Reed, The Paper Cinema creates unique, magical performances that combine the languages of animation, music, film and theatre. Accompanied by a live soundtrack, intricate pen and ink illustrations are skilfully manipulated in real-time in front of a video camera and projected onto the big screen. Sitting in full view of the audience, the puppeteers and musicians work to a precise choreography that is as engrossing to watch as the story being played out above them. With a readily transferrable DIY aesthetic, the company has performed in a diverse range of venues from village halls and arts centres to major film festivals and museums.
