A butterfly flutters. A kite soars. Children play. But not everyone has something to play with.

Rip, Fold, Scrunch took audiences on a journey into the multi-coloured world of friendship, with the help of some magical paper creations.

Inspired by the imagination and play of children, the show fused theatre, Kathak dance and a live cello score within a paper world, which was created and dismantled before our eyes.

Each performance was followed by a play session on the stage for the audience to play with paper to create their own stories and objects.

Rip, Fold, Scrunch was developed as part of Exchange for Change 2009, and undertook two national tours, the first including a residency at London’s Southbank Centre as part of the Alchemy Festival.

You can access the script of this play via the British Library’s MPS Modern Playscripts Collection.
