Paper Planet Photo Roundup

Last weekend, New Victory audiences explored a world of paper in Paper Planet. Alongside artists from Melbourne's Polyglot Theatre, kids and their adults crafted all kinds of crumply creatures and other creations with nothing but paper and tape.

We encourage all the families who visit Paper Planet to document their experiences and share them with us. Check out some of the great photos and videos that we've received—this is just a glimpse of the magic at play in Paper Planet.

Laura Colby (@LCbklyn) tweeted this photo of an inctricately crafted Lady Liberty welcoming our huddled masses of kids and families to Paper Planet. So amazing! Meanwhile, the folks at @seedlingsgroup shared this photo on Instagram, depicting the "interactive magical forest" of cardboard trees that provide the setting for the show.

Kristin Strange of My Strange Family shared her family's "magical afternoon" on Twitter, Vine and Instagram! Something tells me they had a great time.

Documenting her #mommyandme adventures with daughter Isis Rose, @xomandycakes shared this scrapbook-style video on Instagram. It's raining paper (and unlicensed Disney characters)! And over at The Culture Mom, guest blogger Liat Ginsberg included this photo capturing kids and performers all over the paper forest. Can you see the little paper campfire?
Perez Hilton and son J.R., via Instagram.
The award for most prolific contributor definitely goes to blogger Perez Hilton, who brought his son, J.R., to Paper Planet on Sunday and shared these moments across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! Little J.R. had a great time, and he seemed particularly interested in roasting paper carrots with the Polyglot performer dressed as a rabbit. "My son now thinks he's a rabbit!" dad quipped. "#DonnieDarko realness!"

Rabbits seem to be a theme. After the creative chaos settled, the artists of Polyglot Theatre were able to capture some "lush and spectacular" views of the space on camera, both featuring bunnies of one size or another. And in one tweet, they quoted 4-year-old Layla, who was overheard gushing: "That was MAGICAL!"
