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 and puppet designer Tim Denton, 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.
