Taiwanese troupe Puppet Beings Theatre presents a play with a stage, puppets and props all made entirely from paper. Experience one-material Object Theater, which is a form of modern puppetry that utilizes everyday objects as the main characters and elements of a performance. Folding and joining this everyday object in creative ways, the production completely reimagines paper as a storytelling and creative medium.

In “The Park,” a little boy plays with a ball in the park and unexpectedly gets closer to an old man he had once feared. In “The Paper Play,” paper is playfully transformed into a wide range of different characters, completely reimagining the properties and possibilities of your everyday writing sheet.

In a 1 pm pre-performance workshop, participants of all ages can create their own mini-performance using various shapes of paper. The show starts at 2:15 pm.
