British art group The Paper Cinema will bring a unique film version of Shakespeare’s renowned tragedy Macbeth to Hong Kong audiences in November.
The performance features a newly made film with hand-drawn paper puppets projected onto a large screen. Viewers can see how the puppeteers and musicians create the animation as if they are with the crews.
Shakespeare’s tragedy is brought to life as beautifully drawn puppets, evocative music, sound effects and cinematic projection are combined in a captivating silent movie.
Founded in 2004, The Paper Cinema performs a unique blend of live animation, which manipulates intricate pen and ink illustrations in front of a video camera, and original music.
The film screening of The Paper Cinema’s Macbeth will take place at 8pm on November 6 and 7 at City Hall.
The programme is presented by the Leisure & Cultural Services Department and is recommended for those aged 12 and above.
