The Paperboat Stories

20th August 2016, Saturday

A mesmerizing evening of rain, roots and reminiscence brought to life through the narration of four tales that revolved around different emotions, reflected in the metaphor of a paper boat. These stories dealt with everyday incidents – a father-daughter relationship, friendships in college, romantic struggles of the young and the old. Music, narrative, imagination and the underlying association with the characters and the story create a unique experience.
