From going around the world on a bicycle to doing spectacular airshows or climbing the highest mountains, Annie Kopchovsky, Bessie Coleman and Junko Tabei fought the prejudice that surrounded them.
PAPER SMOKERS is a London based international collective of storytellers. We produce film, theatre and installations and are Third Angel Mentees.
The name comes from a poem written by Italian writer Cesare Pavese. We strongly believe in the value of international collaboration and the coming together of artists from different backgrounds as precious tools to interpret today’s world. We share stories of outsiders and focus on work that is multilingual, transnational and exists across borders.
With Katharina Reinthaller we developed a show called “Diary of an Expat” which has been receiving 4 star reviews and praise at Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Katharina is a director and dramaturg who trained at University of Vienna and with StoneCrabs Theatre Company, among many other shows she has also directed Labels (Edinburgh Fringe Festival - Fringe First Winner/Theatre Royal Stratford East/Adelaide & Perth Fringe/Singapore Fringe/University of North Carolina). “Miles Apart Together” is our second production with Katharina.
