The Paper Cinema and Kora presents: King Pest

Last week I had the chance to watch the amazing Paper Cinema at the Summerhall venue in Edinburgh, as they performed some work in progress for their interpretation of the Odyssey. I cant think of any other live act being anything like the Paper Cinema, as they combine some of my favourite things: drawing, moving images, music and storytelling. The concept of their performances is so simple and at the same time so genius, and I absolutely love watching their beautifully detailed black and white drawings move to the music, making my mind wonder off with the narrative of the play. If you ever have the chance to see them live, don't hesitate!
