Paper Balloon make big stories for small people: accessible, interactive, original theatre and audio for young audiences and their families.
Since 2012 we have developed and toured new writing and devised work for young audiences, featuring a blend of original live music, puppetry, dance and lyrical storytelling.
We place young people at the heart of our work, through co-creation, creative learning and meaningful conversation.
We are inspired by the best art for children around the world; through TV and film, theatre and dance to radio and picture books. We believe children and young people should access the best art; regardless of background, as the audience of now, not just the audience of tomorrow.
We are a small company, striving to create art for young people in turbulent times. We believe passionately in what we do, but we’re not above being a bit silly now and again.
We also believe in a healthy Performance for Young Audiences sector in the UK and worldwide, and are committed to widening access for artists from underrepresented backgrounds and mutual support with other artists and companies.
