NIYAR – A PAPER TALE / Germany (Israel)
September 27 @ 6:30 pm
“NIYAR – A Paper Tale” is an object & paper puppet theatre show, without words. A frustrated artist sits on a mountain of crumpled paper. Every rejected idea put on paper, creates a bigger pile. In the midst of this creative crisis, life is created. A paper figure appears and takes the artist on a poetic journey about love, loss and the guts to fly.
“NIYAR” [Hebrew: paper] is created by Maayan Iungman, an Israeli artist, actor and puppeteer based in Berlin, who uses cross-genre techniques and materials in her work. Maayan builds unique imaginary worlds down to the finest detail.
