A fun, participatory performance event, Be My Friend  saw 50 strangers engaged in a series of games with Paper Cut artists over two weekends in January 2015.


This event was designed to engage the community in Paper Cut's theatre making process,  through facilitating the sharing of stories, experiences and thoughts about interactions with strangers.

Participation in this event was recorded and the collected stories were incorporated in the creative development of Paper Cut's new work Hello, Stranger.
