The Paper Traveller
What if books could talk? Go on a treasure hunt across library spaces and discover the imaginary worlds concealed inside books.
Through a series of pop-up books, papercut sets, intimate sound installations and live theatre performances, this immersive show takes you on a storytelling journey through books and explores what happens if you get lost in one.
