About Paper Memories

A new theatre show for children aged 7+, written by Mariem Omari and directed by Rachael Macintyre, explores the importance of memories and how they make us who we are.

Through aerial-dance, puppetry and music, we are brought into the bright and colourful memories of Tali, a refugee girl arriving in Scotland with her family.

The family feels strange and other, with a desperate need to fit in and forget. Tali, told not to remember, finds her memories crumpling and ripping before her eyes, until her family realises that the only way to keep them together, to be a family in this new place, is to remember. Paper Memories uses captivating music and stunning visuals to bring to life memories of wedding parties, chasing chickens and dancing in the air with birds.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Paper Memories are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
