The utterly brilliant Paper Cinema (King Pest & Night Flyer, 2009) are in residence at Mayfest 2013, where they will be working with Bristol-based animators and artists to create West, an entirely new show inspired by the city we call home. Paper Cinema will create a laboratory of creativity in the heart of Bristol’s creative industrial home. Nestled between Bristol Old Vic’s workshops, Puppet Place and Spike Island, Bristol Diving School will be brought to life with paper, scissors, pencils and music.
Acting as a companion piece to their 2009 show East about London’s East End, West will be a reflection of contemporary Bristol, conjured up with their trademark animation, projection and live music. There’ll be chances throughout the week for you to join in and help make the show, and everyone is welcome on the final day of the festival for the world premiere of the show.
Residency: 20-25 May; final performance: 25 May.
Door sales cash only.

An intensely sensorial and breathlessly seductive headphone-theatre spectacular that asks what exactly we might want from our entertainment, and what it might want from us.
An irresistible invitation not only to theatre makers and thoughtful audiences, but to anyone with an interest in how we live today.
