Paper Shaper

BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN’S THEATRE, TOLD THROUGH MASK-WORK AND PUPPETRY

“Enchanting, poetic and moving theatre that is ideal for nourishing little minds… world-quality children’s theatre” – Jenny Wake, Theatreview.

A mischievous little man lives in a rubbish bin – a bin that doesn’t stink! In fact it blooms with flowers and butterflies, trees, caterpillars, dogs, boats and more…a whole world of lively creations made from paper rubbish!

When a long-faced but cheerful man visits the Paper Shaper’s park for a picnic, they become playmates and finally, friends.

This is a story straight from the realms of childhood imagination and curiosity, skillfully told with mask-work and puppetry.

Rich with emotion and humour, Paper Shaper is a welcome antidote to “big-brand” kids’ entertainment.

The little ones will absolutely love it.
