Paper, pens and envelopes offer peepholes into strangers’ worlds; where secrets, self portraits and confessions are shared through a series of armchair interrogations. Based on a six-month exchange of letters and emails with a prisoner, a celebrity and an Iranian artist, The Paper Birds offer a visual and political exploration of Other women, deconstructing the stories and voices of women from the East and West, from different sides of the television screen and different sides of the law.

Through live music, movement and verbatim text, The Paper Birds attempt to represent three absent women and question if it is possible to better understand other women or indeed ourselves.
