Sorry, this event has passed

Volker Gerling is a passionate creator of flipbooks and an intrepid traveller.

Since 2003 he has walked over 3,500km throughout Germany, inviting people to visit his travelling Flipbook thumb cinema exhibition and creating flipbook portraits of some of the people he meets along the way.

In the show, Portraits in Motion, Gerling shows the audience a selection of his favourite portraits by holding each one under a video camera so that its moving images are projected onto a large screen.

In a series of enchanting and precious moments the people he photographed come to life on screen as he shares the heart-warming and moving stories behind each encounter.

Suitable for audiences 12 years +

"Uniquely heart-warming" The Times

"In Volker Gerling's tiny flipbooks, great things emerge from small candid portraits of strangers that offer fascinating glimpses into the human soul." Broadway Baby

Winner of the Total Theatre Award for Innovation and playing with form. Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2015
