CCOTBBAT, A visual theatre company based in Seoul, Korea, is a professional arts group that integrates fine arts and theatre for young audiences and organizes educational exhibitions. The company aims to create experience–oriented arts and has been invited by numerous international festivals Europe, Asia and South America and has received various prestigious awards, such as the Seoul Children’s Theatre Awards and World Puppetry Congress award for ‘Excellent Visual Effects’.
Ccotbbat’s Paper Window is a fascinating blend of animation and interactive performance. The story emerges from a white wall, almost like a sketchbook coming to life! Performers and the audience seem to jump into the sketchbook, to journey on together. The production neatly balances the digital & analogue, play & drawing, story-telling & media art and mixes humour, technology and artistry to make it a memorable experience for the audience.
Paper Window is a multi-disciplinary performance that transports performer and audience alike through an imaginary and often humorous world, created out of the real-time actions of the performer, the drawings of a painter and the participation of the audience.
The audience immerse themselves in intriguing stories and interactive moments as a bare white wall becomes an infinite canvas, bound only by the imaginations of everyone present.
