February 17, 2015 by Smock Alley

Collaborations festival kicks into gear here at Smock Alley this week. A festival of new ideas put together by some of the bravest risk-takers in town, Collaborations 2015 is jam packed with everything from physical theatre to comedy, clowns to time travelling mimes, and interactive theatre to staged readings. Running from February 18th to March 7th, there are even several options for the smaller members of the family…

Paper House
The Main Space – Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd February @ 4pm

paperhouseAcross the world there are stories of guardian spirits, Domovoi and House Brownies, unseen creatures that protect the household and the family within it.

A fledgling guardian spirit moves into a new building and tries to make it a home.

This physical theatre piece explores the life cycle of the buildings we live in, making a home and family of your own and the marks our homelife leaves on us all.

Funny and serious, It’s a show for anyone who got caught drawing on the walls or jumping on the furniture.
