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.
“Celluloid Souls is a tenderly anarchic tour through your collective memories of nights at the movies. More than that, it’s a touching, affecting piece which looks at the power of the moving image and how this shapes our culture and our lives. It’s wonderfully scored and hilariously funny” – Gareth Morgan, Programmer of Playground Nottingham Playhouse
About the company
Zoo Indigo is a Nottingham-based Anglo-German performance company co-founded by Ildikó Rippel and Rosie Garton. We create multi-media theatre that uses humour as a mechanism to explore the realities of unimaginable experiences, and juxtaposes the everyday with the grandeur of the cinematic. Often combing German and English language, the work examines cultural identity, gender representations and themes of displacement and home.
