Founded in 2019, The Paper Theatre is a performance ensemble dedicated to seeking out Meeting between participants and spectators. We define Meeting as:

  1. Offering that which is precious through structured performance
  2. Turning away from pretense and moving toward experiencing here and now
  3. Using the craft and tools of theatre to create an “experience of an experience” which reaches across the usual boundaries of the medium to create connection and resonance
