With some simple tucks and folds a paper plane appears.
Floating, diving and skimming through the air.
Not every plane will be the same just as not every flight it takes will be the same.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you have one parent, two moms, two dads, a mom and a dad, or a wonderful caregiver, there is one thing that makes EVERY family a family…
and that is LOVE!

Paper Plane celebrates this diversity and the different “shapes” that families make in their own lives.
With original music/sound scape and a highly visual set design, Paper Plane is a poetic 45 minute dance theatre performance with 4 adults and 2 children portraying modern families, sharing true stories from a child’s perspective, embodying trust and care, commitment and friendship, it is about LOVE and hard work.

Selma Daniel Choreographer/Director of LittleLion Dance Theatre wants to encourage awareness and acceptance of “non-traditional” families, to celebrate the diversity of families and encourage acceptance and inclusion in children’s and adults’ relationships. “There are two things parents should give their children roots and wings. Roots to give them bearing and a sense of belonging, but also wings to help free them from constraints and prejudices and give them other ways to travel.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
