The Paper ArchitectThe Paper Architect tells the tale of a lonely man who longs for a life he never led. Created by Davy & Kristin McGuire, the winners of this year's Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust, this cross-genre craft and video projection bonanza brings to life the wistful desires of the lonely man. Secluded in his workshop, he builds intricate paper models that become vessels for his eccentric dreams and melancholic memories. The Paper Architect takes part on the corner of Leytonstone Library in east London. It is is part of the Beyond Barbican season - an exciting programme of events taking place outside the walls of the famous arts centre that includes pop-ups, commissions and collaborations across east London. For more information please visit www.barbican.org.uk/beyondbarbican.
