The Paper Cinema's Odyssey: Fundraiser for Refugees in Calais

The Paper Cinema's Odyssey: Fundraiser for Refugees in Calais

2 no. saves icon · Contemporary, Fringe Theatre, Site Specific/Immersive

After touring across the UK and internationally to 16 countries, The Paper Cinema's Odyssey returns to raise funds for two organisations working with refugees in the ongoing international refugee crisis.


Raging storms and supernatural forces prevail over one man’s almighty quest to get home. Immerse yourself in a journey through the high seas, soak up the adventure and encounter danger and exhilaration.

Homer’s cornerstone of literature is vividly told with beautiful illustration and masterful puppetry. Cinematic projection and cunning tricks transform a suitcase full of cut-out paper puppets into an array of living characters and striking landscapes. A silent film is created before your eyes, set to a captivating live score from exceptional musicians.

100% of the proceeds from this performance (after card charges) will be donated to Good Chance Calais and Médecins Sans Frontières – two organisations making a daily difference to refugees who have travelled from countries across the Middle East and Africa, and are currently camped out near Calais.
