For slightly older children, Paper Memories is a captivating show that mixes visual spectacle with powerful messages.
The production combines dance, puppetry, music and aerial to tackle migration, identity and the power of memories through the story of Tali.
A refugee who comes to Scotland with her family, she tries to fit into her new surroundings and forget what she went through in her home country.
As Tali and her family try to shed their past, they grow to realise that their history is what makes them who they are, and what connects them. The poignant story will grip everyone who sees it and have you wanting to make your own special memories.
See Paper Memories at Dundee Rep on Monday, April 1.
