The Kickstarter Campaign is live for our 2022 Summer show!

The Time is Now! Paperhand is back for our 22nd summer spectacle for all ages. This year we’re taking an adventurous dive into the paradoxical nature of time. Paper, cloth, and cardboard transform into creatures and characters of all shapes and sizes then come alive in a parade of primordial pageantry! …and we stop to wonder – what will we do with the time we have?  

We are excited to announce our Kickstarter fundraising campaign for our 2022 Summer show! Please consider donating  today at the link below. Any donation, big or small, will help us create. You’ll be supporting the infrastructure to make magic. We’ll need materials to build puppets, to pay our hard-working interns, cover lighting and venue costs, and help with any expenses that arise before opening night. We literally can’t do it without these community grants. From the very bottom of our hearts, thank you. 

Please share wildly.

Books are in stock now, and are available for purchase
online and at:

Paperhand events, The General Store in Saxapahaw, McIntyre’s Books in Fearrington Village, Flyleaf in Chapel Hill, Quail Ridge in Raleigh

“The handsome volume is also a triumph against the subtle forces that always threaten the legacy of the live arts…

All through the book, a cascade of vivid full-page images and illustrations feature an astonishing array of larger-than-life mythic, iconic, and archetypal figures drawn from indigenous folk tales across the globe. Dragons and phoenixes fly across its pages.”
