The Paper Cinema’s Macbeth

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.’
