Who We Are
Launched in 2014, Paperwork Theatre create live theatrical experiences for all ages and backgrounds. Led by a core creative team of Co-Artistic Directors Nicole Behan & Hayley Greggs and Creative Producer Siofra McKeon-Carter, their work connects with people through stories and seeks to find ways for audiences to become active participants.
What We Do
By creating work which is joyful, playful, adventurous and full of human experience, Paperwork aspire to create shared experiences which are accessible to everyone.
We create highly visual and physical storytelling in a range of traditional theatres and non-traditional spaces which have included city centres, festivals, red telephone boxes, night clubs, shopping malls and children’s libraries. Through our practice, we aspire to attract both regular theatre goers and people who don’t normally access theatre by animating spaces in new ways and inviting audiences to experience theatre in a non-traditional manner.
