Starring:

the paper

Since 1995 the Papiertheater has been exploring the visual, acoustic and dramatic potential of this very material. A huge paper surface stretches across the stage and stands between audience and actors: it serves as a screen that could be painted or projected onto, a wall where holes and windows are cut or torn from, a surface that gives birth to objects by being fold and bent. The shows are based on visual language and therefore do not need many words.

Co-starring:

the scissors

The Papiertheater is a company and thrives on the collaboration of various art forms: musicians, sculptors, puppeteers and storytellers engage in paper affairs. The results travel around the earth.

Backstage:

the publishing house

The Papiertheater runs its own publishing company: Erlesene Bücher (Exquisite Books) , which focuses on selling hand-made unica at booksellers’ prices. For orders or inquiries please contact the Papiertheater.
