This is a story, just one. But it’s told from two (very different!) points of view…

Isn’t it funny how two friends, standing side by side, can share the exact same experience, but each comes away with their own unique collection of feelings, observations and memories?

Paper Rainbows, told through beautiful shadow puppetry and magical soundscapes, is a multi-POV story of friendship and connection, exploring the transformative power of seeing things through different eyes.

Devised and performed by Village Young Storytellers, a collective of artists aged 13-16 who meet weekly in Pollok to create, learn about and shape the landscape of contemporary storytelling. With direction and support from Colin White (Village Storytelling Centre), Debbie Montgomery and Genna Allan (Associate Artists).
