The Paper Cinema Tells the Story of The Odyssey Through Projected Illustrations (Video)

Whether or not you've read The Odyssey, this time, no words are involved in telling the tale. The Paper Cinema narrates the story of Homer's famous epic poem through a live projection performance of hand-held illustrations accompanied by music. The images move and interact with each other on the screen as Odysseus makes his way home to Ithaca after the Trojan War, while no words are used to aid the story. In the past, you may have been overwhelmed by reading the tale, but enjoying The Paper Cinema's version involves no strenuous work. The Odyssey can be viewed until March 9 at The Battersea Arts Centre.
