In a child’s imagination, whole worlds can grow and thrive from the simplest everyday objects, like a piece of paper. Our adventure introduces a little stranger with a big paper roll. Starting with an examination of this pure, but shapeable material, he soon discovers its storytelling possibilities. He enters the paper realm and meets a tiny paper boy, a new friend in a new world. They start to explore it together and find out that it might be dangerous, too. Join Tantehorse for a nonverbal fairytale with a minimalistic setting that works with the spectator’s imagination.

About the Company

MIME PRAGUE is an artistic company presenting contemporary mime theatre.


The Minor Theatre mainly has been linked for years with a puppet and children stage. Since 2001 many of important changes took a place connected especially with the acquisition of a new modern building in Vodickova Street. A prestigious award The Building of the Year 2002 and a City of Prague Mayor’s Prize (in creation of a unique space for children’s art activities) was subsequently obtained.

At the present, the theatre attempts to perform not only for the children but also attract the grown-up audience and thus the whole family.
