Intricate pen and ink illustrations are manipulated in front of a video camera and projected in real-time onto the big screen alongside the live music, which is integral to the work.

Founded in 2004 by Nicholas Rawling, Imogen Charleston and Christopher Reed, The Paper Cinema perform a unique blend of live animation and music, which continues to tour around Britain and Internationally.
