Paper Memories

Jabuti Theatre's Paper Memories, at East Kilbride Arts Centre, is an exhilarating performance for children aged 7+ about migration, identity and the power of memories.

About Paper Memories

Using 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.

Written by Mariem Omari and directed by Rachael Macintyre, Paper Memories takes the audience on a visual journey exploring the importance of memories, and how they make us who we are.

Praise for Jabuti Theatre’s Moonbeam on a Cat’s Ear:
“It is an ingenious gem aimed at wee ones but a joy for anyone whose inner child still lurks near the surface.” ***** Irene Brown, Edinburgh Guide
“The show’s use of music is so compelling, though, and the visual images of the voyage so gorgeous, that the story becomes steadily more entrancing as it goes on…” Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman
