Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape LIVE
Free admission, booking essential

Through close observation of the adventures and mishaps of Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner and Bugs Bunny, Andy Holden has analysed the conventions that operate in the virtual realm of the animated cartoon, to come up with ten non-Newtonian Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape.

In this special live performance Holden is transported into the cartoon world via green-screen technology, offering a dazzling journey through the history of animation, critical theory, physics and art, before arriving at contemporary politics and Trump Tower – ultimate proof that the world has now come to resemble a cartoon.

Andy Holden’s live presentation of Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape has been organised in partnership with Falmouth University’s Academy of Music and Theatre Arts (AMATA).
