Pape & Taper Productions is a fledgling company based in Calgary AB. We were formed after a long, sweaty night filled with newspaper, white glue, and low quality masking tape. It was messy, cheap, and the start of something weird and wonderful. Our members have a wide range of specialities including puppetry, clown, music, lighting, set design, and playwriting. Comprised entirely of graduates from the University of Lethbridge, Pape and Taper’s roots reach back several years to when we were starry eyed pups brewing coffee for all nighters.
We here at Pape & Taper believe that limitations are the source of ingenuity. We believe that stretching a dollar helps stretch our imaginations and that working in our cramped living room forces us to think outside of the box. Ultimately, our goal is to communicate to audiences the joy and passion that comes into play through art. Whether that be through puppets, people, or simple tape and paper we are here as a team because we have stories to tell.
