Making Paper Movie – A workshop with Ron G. Davis, founder of the San Francisco Mime Troupe www.sfmt.org Friday, April 15, 2011 11:00 – 1:00 Palmerston Ave & Bloor St. Picture storytelling is a practice and tradition that finds roots in China and other Asian nations going back over hundreds and hundreds of years. Our contemporary cinema finds surprising picture storytelling precursors in medieval German bankelsang (literally singing banners), Italian cantastoria (sung stories), and even 12th Century Japanese Buddhist kamishibai (literally “paper scrolls”). Ron G. Davis, found of the San Francisco Mime Troupe has practiced numerous forms of popular theatre including the production of “paper movies” – moving scrolls of paper in which stories are illustrated and brought to life with witty and pointed scripts. In this workshop Ron will share some of his experience and he will lead some thinking, research, writing and production of a paper movie (likely to focus on the global production, marketing, distribution and consumption of the tomato; bring with you everything you know about tomatos).
