Is it a film? is it a play?

The Man Who Fed Butterflies

at the Kings theatre, Edinburgh

Using blue screen technology and the technique developed by Chile’s Teatro Cinema, actors play in a filmic landscape and reveal a play which is more like a film.

“Though brilliantly done, Juan Carlos Zagal’s production is more of a cinematic experience than a theatrical one, and it is debatable what the live actors add. Yes, we are impressed to find them always in the right place between the closeups and long shots, but as performers they can offer us neither the intimacy of the stage nor the control of the big screen.”
