Ryan Odysseys with Paper Cinema on the Culture Laser

February 25, 2013

Lately I had the extreme pleasure of chatting about theatre and monsters with Nicholas Rawling of Paper Cinema, a company I cannot gush about sufficiently enthusiastically, or describe in sufficiently elaborate terms. Their latest production is The Odyssey, which is on at Battersea Arts Centre until 6 March 2013, and if for whatever reason you’re not totally excited about an ‘exploded comic book’ take on Odysseus’ voyage already, we get a chance to hear some of the amazing music from the show performed by Christopher Reed, Hazel Mills, Imogen Charleston and Quinta.¬†We also feature ‘The Secret Life of a Second Hand Copy of ee cumming’s 100 Selected Poems’ from artist, playwright, producer and top-notch reader¬†Deborah Pearson. It will make the hairs on your neck do a fun dance.

We have a great podcast for you, alls you gotta do is click the right-pointing triangle below.
