In the darkness of the cinema, we can brush hands, spill popcorn, laugh, scream, become heroes, villains and lovers. We can dream of kissing strangers, riding horses, saving cities and surviving death. We can weep for the horror of the world and no-one will mind.
Join Zoo Indigo and musician Matt Marks as they re-create and deconstruct your cinema memories in a flurry of foley, live soundscores, wigs, and camera trickery. With their usual multimedia magic, the performers satirically explore representations of culture, gender and propaganda in Hollywood films.
Celluloid Souls presents a tailor-made experience for every new audience. On booking, spectators submit details of their favourite movie moments along with a cinema-related memory. Autobiography, audience memory and film text are blurred as the performing trio investigate the desires that movies evoke: to find love, to find a happy end, to be a hero, to be a villain, to be a sexy German villain in long leather boots.
