An instant classic created by Puppet Beings Theatre, The Paper Play brings you a puppet show made from a simple piece of paper. By folding and joining this everyday object in creative ways, Puppet Beings Theatre completely reimagines paper as a storytelling and creative medium.
Join us at Flushing Town Hall as we purvey these stories:
“The Park”: As a little boy plays with a ball in the park, it unexpectedly brings him closer to an old man whom he has been afraid of. Puppets, lights, and music all highlight this touching story of caring for the elderly.
“The Paper Play”: In this wild and creative ride, paper is playfully transformed into a wide range of different characters, completely reimagining the properties and possibilities of your everyday writing sheet.
“Object Theater” is a form of modern puppets that utilizes everyday objects as the main characters and elements of a performance. In this workshop, participants of all ages will learn how to create their own mini-performance using various shapes of paper.
This program has been funded in part by The Jim Henson Foundation.
