In a country with world-renowned puppetry traditions, the young, expert artists of Papermoon are extending the form with their mixed-media productions, and creating works that imaginatively explore identity, society and Indonesia’s recent past. On tour for Center Stage: Mwathirika, set in 1965, the infamous Year of Living Dangerously, when thousands of Indonesians were jailed and murdered during anti-Communist purges. Papermoon’s non-verbal multi-media production unravels Indonesian culture and recovers a lost history with grace and graphic boldness.
