Following their critically acclaimed show Odyssey, Paper Cinema reimagine Macbeth as a cautionary tale for our times.

By Caroline Williams and Reem Karssli, Now Is The Time To Say Nothing is an interactive sound and video installation exploring the role of screens in observing global conflicts.

The Vicar of Abbiston Fosset has something he wants to get off his chest. A man of God, a devoted husband, a trusted minister and, most proudly, an acclaimed expert on his beloved orchids. The vicar’s seemingly bucolic life hides a dark secret which he no longer feels he can keep to himself.

With typical charm, wit and invention, the company takes its audience on a journey through rugged Scottish landscapes to encounter storms, battles betrayal and murderous plots. Shakespeare’s tragedy is brought to life as beautifully drawn puppets, evocative music, Foley sound and cinematic projection combine in a captivating silent film created before your eyes.

He called himself ‘The Orchidian’ but, after hearing his confession, you may have a very different name for him.

A room containing 1,000 questions about race, written by Selina Thompson in three sittings across 24 hours one weekend in Edinburgh. You’re invited to answer one of them.

Olivia Furber, Ramzi Maqdisi, 9T Antiope and Hannah Mason transport you to distant metropolis; the only city that exists twice; once on earth and once in heaven; Yaboos.

In this constantly evolving installation and archive, participants are liable to supply their own answers to the many facets of race and racism in modern society.

You are invited on an alternative guided tour of a city where the truth is stranger than fiction: you can see the sea but are forbidden to touch it, being honest is illegal and those with ancestors from the city are forbidden to enter it.

Is He On The Line…? is a new music theatre piece created by British visual artist Jez Dolan and Icelandic composer Ingibjörg Yr Skarphéthinsdóttir. Is He On The Line…? takes us on a journey that explores the suppression of sexuality, concealment, hidden secrets, the avoidance of language, and the importance of ‘what we don’t say’. Is He On The Line…? asks what it means to be a people without a history. Commissioned in Iceland by Einkofi and premiered here in Hull.

Selina’s practice is primarily intimate, political, and participatory, with a strong strand of public engagement that then leads to joyous, highly visual work that seeks to connect to those often marginalised by the arts.

“An epic, imaginative voyage.” – Time Out

The Land’s Heart is Greater Than Its Map questions who has the authority to give a coherent narrative of a city and how we are able to come into contact with the ‘real’ essence of a place.

The show is a provocation against armchair passivity. Using stunning video and immersive sound, it follows the real story of Syrian artist Reem Karssli as she captures her daily experience of the Syrian conflict on camera. Together, Williams and Karssli co-author an experience which attempts to connect a UK audience to the human story behind the news.
