TALENTED performers are creating characters from newspapers as an East End charity takes its unique street art to one of the country's biggest charity events in London's West End.

Paper People, created by Kazzum theatre company in East London's Brick Lane, is a play about the 2012 Olympics.

Two disabled actors perform as newspaper sellers and create a range of characters and landscapes using their papers.

The interactive performance which is hitting the stage at Liberty, Britain's biggest disability rights festival in Trafalgar Square on Saturday, includes Chinese paper cutting as well as 3D art techniques.

It is all based around a newspaper stand and aims to highlight to its young audience how different animations can evolve from one simple piece of paper.
