Imogen Charleston

Imogen is one of the founding members of The Paper Cinema, since the first improvised performance in 2004, which included a whale with a hand in its mouth and a little boat.

Growing up on the Dorset coast, Imogen studied a Btec in Art & Design at Shelly Park Art School, Bournemouth. She then went on to have a career as an electronics technician before returning to study a BA in Applied Art & Design, which she will graduate from in 2012.

Imogen likes to take photos and is also a musician, playing bass and trumpet. Her multidisciplinary approach has been key in the development and synesthetic performance techniques of the Paper Cinemas unique live animation style.

Quinta’s dad gave her this name when she was a baby.  She was the fifth of five children and a girl. He was a teacher of Latin and Greek, and filled the mini and wonder-eyed Quinta in on all things Homer as she grew.  It was only a matter of time and a fair wind before Quinta found her way to The Paper Cinema and its production of The Odyssey. Quinta is a multi-instrumentalist, solo artist, and general mischief-maker based in London and plays violin and musical saw in this production.  As well as collaborating with The Paper Cinema, Quinta plays with Collectress, Philip Selway, Marques Toliver, Penguin Cafe, Diagrams, and others.
