The Cabinet of Living Cinema is a meeting of artists dedicated to creating ‘performance cinema’.

“It’s an amazing distraction to have four live performers providing the sound and music to a film. You are focused on the moving image, but every now and then there’s no harm in glancing over at TCOLC to see Parkinson winding an old sewing machine handle for cogs and wheels turning on screen or catch Perry wring out some bubble wrap as a fire crackles and pops. It is no less magical to know what is making the noise”.
Stuart Wright, Screen Daily, 2013

“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
