Things we like
We were blown away by Paper Cinema’s stunning new feature-length show at Bournemouth last night - Odyssey.
As the show starts you watch Nic Rawling draw the main characters live, while the credits flicker around them - and at that point you know it’s going to be an extraordinary evening.
It’s Greek myth as you’ve never seen before - complete with hitchhiker, motorbike, speedboat - wonderful drawing by Nic and a fabulous soundtrack by his band. People are saying it’s the best thing they have ever seen - wow !
The tour continues until the end of November - don’t miss it !
12000 is a lot of pieces of paper - wonderful piece of work
Angel Exit unearth the dark heart of The Secret Garden, which sees spoilt Mary Lennox plucked from the bright vibrancy of India and transplanted to a big old house full of secrets on the grey Yorkshire moors.
As Mary battles loneliness she encounters locked doors, a curious robin, hidden keys, and strange cries ringing down the corridor…
Presented in Angel Exit's rich visual style and blending storytelling with striking physicality, beautiful puppets, live singing and an original soundtrack, The Secret Garden is performed by an ensemble of five.
This show for all the family is has been co-produced by Dorchester ARTS and Bridport Arts Centre, and co-commissioned by Lighthouse, Poole's Centre for the Arts, and Activate.
The Secret Garden is touring from January until the end of March 2012 and is funded by Arts Council England and West Dorset Leisure fund. This is Angel Exit's third show created at their base at Dorchester ARTS.
