Presented by: Little Dog Barking Theatre

A charming story about a mischievous little man who lives in a rubbish bin.

Short and simple, yet rich with emotion and humour, Paper Shaper is the antithesis of big-brand kids’ entertainment such as Hi-5 or the Wiggles. With utmost care and skill the company weaves together a magical world that will introduce children to the true beauty that theatre is capable of expressing.

The story springs straight from the realms of imagination and curiosity that children inhabit. What happens to that little man on the side of the rubbish bin when no-one is looking? He creates a whole universe out of people’s paper, with a paper sun, paper trees, paper flowers and paper butterflies. When a long-faced but cheerful man visits the paper shaper’s park for a picnic, the two start out as opponents, but soon become playmates and finally, friends.

This tale, devised by director Peter Wilson, with music by Gareth Farr, needs no dialogue to communicate to its junior audience. The combination of mask work and puppetry opens up some wonderful possibilities for visual storytelling.

Suitable for years 2 – 100.

"This is the kind of enchanting, poetic and moving theatre that is ideal for nourishing little minds." - Thomas Hood, Dominion Post
