One of Hackney’s most extraordinary live acts, THE CABINET OF LIVING CINEMA present the first revival in four years of their semi-improvised, semi-composed sound track to Sergei Parajanov’s 1968 THE COLOUR OF POMEGRANATES, a master-piece of Soviet Cinema.
THE CABINET OF LIVING CINEMA is a meeting of artists dedicated to creating “living cinema” experiences through live performance.
“lyrical, passionate and searching; impossible to forget” (Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman)
“sensational avant-garde and animated films” (Donald Hutera, The Times)
“There’s something wonderfully old school about walking into a cinema and discovering that the score you’re about to hear is to be performed live. The instinctive reaction is to check your pockets for Strand cigarettes and a pension book just in case you’ve injudiciously stepped into a time warp.” (Dixe Wills, Guardian writer)
