Paper Balloon

We strive to make original and challenging theatre that engages with complex and important themes in a fun, quirky and accessible way. We believe young audiences are perceptive, intelligent and deserving of theatrical work of the highest quality regardless of age. Now based in London, but with strong ties to Oxford, our work tours to theatre and non-theatre spaces, and we are passionate about reaching new audiences. Touring so far has taken us throughout the UK and to Moscow. We are an outwardly-focused company and draw inspiration from international companies and artists. So far we have collaborated with artists from Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Germany and the USA. We consistently work with young people through development, ensuring they remain central to whatever we create. We develop work with our core ensemble of artists, featuring original live music and song through all our productions.We produce exclusively new stories for the stage, whether working with writers or devising.  Paper Balloon create exciting, original storytelling theatre for young audiences.
