It's a collaborating work between Maria Tri Sulistyani (Artistic Director of Papermoon) with Anna Loewendahl (Director of Transvision Arts, Australia) which is having her Asialink Artist Residency Program in Papermoon Puppet Theatre.
"MAU APA ???" is a performance held in the markets, both traditional market and Sunday market.
We made a small research about the stuffs we want "to sell".
Then we decided to sell abstract things, such as "Love, Faith, Power, Long life, Thin, Partner for you son/daughter, Going to Mecca, Health and Money"
The story of the performance is based on the interaction between the puppets and the audience who sits on the "hot seat".
We used Indonesian and Javanese language in the performance.
Yosafat "Jordana" Diaswikarta played Bejo's puppet, a character who was left by his beloved girlfriend, had his shoes shop on a bankrupt condition, and had a bestfriend Bredjel (played by Maria Tri Sulistyani), an old woman, who lost her family because of a very bad disease.
This interactive play was played twice on June 20-21, 2009 in two different markets.
as this performance is a new form of theatre in Indonesia, publics made so many interesting response.
We hope that we can play this role in different places, so we can find many different important things from people who lives in different area.
