hello guys!!! here we meet again!!

yeiy!! we just past the first row of PESTA BONEKA#2. well.. PESTA BONEKA is a biennale puppet festival that was initiated by Papermoon Puppet Theatre (yes.. us!!). on this festival we would love to celebrate how's people using theater figure (including whatever kind of puppets, wayang, objects, masks, etc), and ask more people to enjoy it!

so, last night (december ,14th) we just did the first term of PESTA BONEKA#2 with 4 different performances, and an opening of our exhibition.
You can check the schedule, in HERE ..

this is where we made it!


well.. Yogya was poured by a heavy rain in the afternoon... that made us so worried... but slowly the rain started to stop, then we started to play the first performance just 15 minutes past from the actual time. and hundreds of people were there!!! AMAZING !!!

so.. here are some photos that was taken by parko and some friends for our party last night.. enjoy guys!!!

they drove their car from france for 2 years and passed 17 countries to come to Java Island!!







the members of Wayang Beber Kota.. we invited 3 people to come, but there were 30 people coming!!! FANTASTIC!!! they kept playing their music instruments and singing all the afternoon.. yes they were rehearsing, and it was so beautiful!!!!

me and Ki Ledjar Sukasman (all dalangs-traditional puppeteer- in Indonesia always got "Ki" for the man in front of their name, and "Nyi" for the woman, as a respect from people).. the maestro of Wayang Kancil.. he is 73 years old.. and amazing!!! i learned how to make wayang from him!! :D


Tadaaaaaaaaa.. the opening of the festival!!!
