Yael Rasooly, hailed as one of the brightest stars of the international puppet festival circuit, makes her Boston-area debut with “Paper Cut,” a play about a lonely secretary who escapes from her boring job and thwarted love life into a world of cinematic daydreams. Iconic stars of the silver screen emerge as paper figures as she turns the pages of an old movie magazine. But as imagination and reality collide, her romantic tale becomes a Hitchcock nightmare! This extraordinary one-woman show celebrates classic film with witty scenography and brilliant comedic acting. The language of black and white cinema is transformed into the “low-tech” universe of paper cut-outs and object theatre.

Hailed as “an artfully quirky solo performance” by the New York Times, this show brings classic Hollywood history to life with a unique twist on traditional paper theater.

“Paper Cut” has won several international awards and has toured to over 30 international festivals, including the International Festival for Puppets in Charleville-Mézières, France, the Puppets in the Green Mountains Festival in Vermont, and the Festival of Wonder, Silkeborg, and many others.

Recommended for adults and teens.

About the artist:
Born in 1983 in Jerusalem, Israel, Yael Rasooly was trained primarily as a classical singer and went on to study theatre design in London. She began developing her unique theatrical language at the School of Visual Theatre in Jerusalem, where she specialized in directing, puppetry, and design, and graduated with excellence. Since 2006, Yael has been creating independent theatre works and has performed at leading international festivals throughout Europe, Canada, the United States, South America and the Far East. Yael’s theatrical language is based on a multidisciplinary approach, combining different forms of theatre, puppetry, visual art, and music.

Puppet Showplace is funded in part by grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the New England Foundation for the Arts. Support for “Paper Cut” is made possible by Puppeteers of America and Israel’s Office for Cultural Affairs in North America.
