Last night we went to see The Paper Cinema's production of Homer's The Odyssey at the Contact Theatre in Manchester. It was the last of the tour dates, and we got the last three tickets, and I am so glad we did. The live performance is created with live ink drawing and moving hand drawn and cut-out illustrations, all to live music created by three musicians alongside the two puppeteers. It was feast for the eyes, watching the projection on screen, or the moving pieces, or the music makers. The whole experience was fantastic (the video gives you an idea of the splendour) and I hope to see some more Paper Cinema when they're next on tour.
