MWATHIRIKA will be on Darwin Festival, Australia

our last journey is the end of 2012..
and now we are so happy to say that Mwathirika will have a new journey to Darwin, Australia for Darwin Festival 2013.

with new form of puppeteers, we are so excited to share about what we do with old and new friends that we will meet in Darwin.

as the first plan, we will do 2 stage performances,
3 times roving performances, and 1 workshop.

but it was changed.
Since 2 days performances were SOLD OUT ( even 2 weeks before the show)
- which made us really surprised, excited, and thrilled in the same time-
Darwin Festival asked us to do an extra show.
And we say yes! :)

so, please wish us luck, dear friends...
and we hope to see you soon!


Papermoon Puppet Theatre

Origin Indonesia
Papermoon Puppet Theatre brings its exquisite blend of visual arts and theatre to Darwin Festival. This innovative Indonesian company takes an artform most often associated with children’s stories and uses it to uncover a country’s dark history in a charming fairy tale style.
Inspired by the events of the infamous ‘Year of Living Dangerously’ in Indonesia, Mwathirika explores themes of identity and society. It uncovers some of the turmoil and upheaval that occurred in the transition to modern-day Indonesia through thought-provoking stories that are highly relatable and ultimately uplifting. Using the whimsy and seeming innocence of beautiful, simple puppets and minimal dialogue, Papermoon Puppet Theatre has created a unique multimedia performance that goes beyond the actual historical events to explore the personal side of history and its effects on the family.
Original, imaginative and utterly stunning, Mwathirikatells the hidden and forbidden story of a nation. Though the events themselves were harrowing, Papermoon Puppet Theatre tells its story with such tenderness and beauty that it will linger long in the hearts and minds of those who experience it.
Discover Papermoon Puppet Theatre as they rove around Festival sites, creating enchanting one-on-one performances for children and adults alike.
Supported by the Consulate of the Republic of Indonesia.


"Papermoon Puppet Theatre has transformed puppets the way graphic novels changed comics: taking a popular form too often dismissed as child's play and making it intellectually challenging, emotionally chilling, and visualy bold."
