Portraits In Motion

Volker Gerling


Tickets for Portraits In Motion are available exclusively through the Theatre Junction GRAND box office at theatrejunction.com or 403.205.2922

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

Since 2003 he has walked over 3,500 kiolometres 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.

Winner of the Total Theatre Award for Innovation and Playing With Form, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2015.
