2015 Capital Fringe Preview #46: ‘Paper Glass’

Paper Glass explores the struggles of childhood and the absurdity of adult logic through the eyes of a girl whose memory works backwards. In Paper Glass, Alex desperately tries to understand her surroundings at school, at home and in-between. This highly visual performance is set in a surreal wasteland of crumpled paper in a world where nonsense is the norm. It’s adapted from Lewis Carroll’s Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Paper Glass is presented by MonTra Performance and features Monica Dionysiou.
