PAPIRUS

A show dedicated to those who still smile.

In the middle of nothing, a man. He walks alone, exhausted, carrying a large suitcase and a big piece of paper.

At midnight, a woman. On her last legs, she seeks a place to sleep.

In a moment, these two strangers will meet.

How to you react to a stranger? Can we choose whether we establish complicity or become a threat to the other person? How to reveal our intimacy and hopes without being scared of being weak? What fears of the past can we overcome?

PAPIRUS speaks of friendship, war and the fears that make us smaller, of feelings and of hope, in which gesture, humour and creativity are the stars.

A show about the magic that is born when we open ourselves to the other person from the depths of our heart.
