Papermoon Puppet Theatre: Mwathirika

  • Location:
    Asia Society,

From a culture steeped in rich traditions of puppetry comes Papermoon Puppet Theatre, a new mixed-media production exploring themes of identity, society and Indonesia’s recent past.
Mwathirika is set in 1965, the infamous Year of Living Dangerously, when thousands of Indonesians were jailed and murdered. A history of the lost, and the lost history of a nation. A non-verbal, puppet-theater experience.
