PNC Presents Imagination Stage's Paper Dreams

Written and directed by Claudia Moreso, Mons Dansa Dance Company (Barcelona, Spain) 
Remount directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer
Best for Ages 1-7

  • PNC Presents Imagination Stage's Paper Dreams

    Saturdays and Sundays, July 31 - August 15, 2021

    Imagination Stage's charming and dreamy dance-based performance imagines two delightful friends who live inside a wastepaper basket! Together they discover what imaginative ideas might unfold from a crumpled piece of paper. Maybe mistakes are okay--perhaps they can inspire our greatest ideas. DC Metro Theatre Arts calls Paper Dreams “an enchanting production that...educates and entertains and sparks inquiry into the creative process for young and old alike.”
