Radim Vizváry: Paperboy
pantomime for youngest
The imagination of a child can bring to life even simple everyday objects like a piece of paper. In our performance, the imagination of the young narrator is sparked by a large roll of paper. While he examines the clean and malleable material, stories appear that the paper tells. The narrator enters this world of paper, where he meets a small boy who becomes his guide. Together, they set off on a voyage of discovery before quickly finding that tension and danger may also be lurking.
This non-verbal fairytale with minimalist set design engages the audience’s imagination. In the hands of an experienced puppeteer and mime Radim Vizváry, paper is transformed onstage into fantastic scenes from a fairytale world and children in the audience are invited through gestures to play a part.
