    Short tales of other worlds; ghosts, dreams and the supernatural – brought to life through hand-drawn illustrations, masterful puppetry, cinematic projection and live music

    Fascinating and imaginative storytellers, The Paper Cinema, create extraordinary, magical worlds with vivid pen and ink drawings, puppetry, and a treasure trove of acoustic and electronic sounds. This show gathers favourite short stories, including the dream-like Night Flyer, humorous Devil in Cornwall, spooky Wanderer and Edgar Allan Poe’s King Pest.

    Performed by two puppeteers and a multi-instrumentalist, The Paper Cinema return to their ‘out-of-a suitcase’ origins to delight you with atmospheric tales of ghosts, dreams and the supernatural.

    Some stories originally commissioned by Sound UK. Night Flyer and King Pest commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre.

      The Times

      The Telegraph
    • “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.”
