On Thursday 8th November (2018), Drama and Theatre Club children went to the Liverpool Everyman Theatre to see ‘The Paper Cinema’s Macbeth’ – a captivating silent film created before their eyes.
Children immersed themselves in a journey through rugged Scottish landscapes and encountered storms, betrayal and murderous plot. Shakespeare’s tragedy was vividly told with illustration, masterful puppetry and a live musical score. Hand-drawn puppets collided with music, Foley and cinematic projection to create epic battle scenes and intricate characters.
Nic Rawling form The Paper Cinema said: ‘…..the children that you brought along were lovely and said a lot of ‘thank yous’ on leaving.’
