The Paper Cinema present The Odyssey

Running time: approximately 75 minutes Suitable for: 10+ Raging storms and supernatural forces prevail over one man’s almighty quest to get home. The story of Odysseus’ long journey through the high seas, and his frequent encounters with danger are brilliantly illustrated using extraordinarily simple but hugely skilful drawings and projection, accompanied throughout by a live soundscore on instruments including percussion, keyboards and violin. Co-produced with Battersea Arts Centre, this feature length adaptation of Homer’s cornerstone of literature has rightly won plaudits from critics and public alike. ***PLEASE NOTE*** Due to unforeseen circumstances, the date of this performance has been changed from the 20 February 2014 to 4 June 2014.
