Paper Tiger Studio
Paper Tiger is an independent theatrical performing group of dancers, artists as well as people from different areas led by Tian Gebing. Since 1997, Paper Tiger has created and curated numerous works and art projects and its "heterotopian" contemporary theater aesthetics have matured through these practices. In 2010, Paper Tiger set up their own theater space and began to organize "playing the fool", which can be roughly defined as a theater festival, to support young creators and independent theater groups. In the same year, Tian Gebing and Paper Tigers started to engage in cross-cultural and theatrical creation and in 2012 they started the large scale research project “Mass: Very Happy” which included field research in both China and Germany. The theatrical part of this project made its debut at a famous indoor theater in Munich, Germany in October 2014 and turned out to be a well-acclaimed success.
