"SIRDUSKARKUS" is a play for all ages, non verbal, mixed between actors, human-sized puppets, bunraku-style puppets, shadow puppets and mask

about a city...
... where clowns become the citizen of it...
... where the clowns just want to play, want to feel happy, and they do everything to get anything they want...

on July 16, 2011.. at 7.00 pm!!
it's the world premiere, guys...
you'd better check it out! ;)

Sirduskarkus is becoming the part of Festival Wayang Indonesia 2011
and it's for FREE!!!!
:D

it's a play about... a city.
... where clowns become the citizen of it...
... where the clowns just want to play, want to feel happy, and they do everything to get anything they want...
... where old couples have to get deals with the speed of the city...
... where old couples can beat the clown, with only a balloon.. ;)


and about "CIRCUS OF LIFE" ?


it's a solo exhibition of Papermoon Puppet Theatre..
in The Tunnel, Esplanade Theatre of The Bay, Singapore!
it will be held around 2 months from August 12th, 2011
Circus Of Life is a commisioned work that's fully supported by Esplanade.

we'll stay in Singapore for almost a month, from July 22nd-August 15th, 2011.
and we'll make workshop with the college students from ITE Tampines, which already supported us with bunch of researches from 1 month before.

Our idea in this project is for dedicating our time to learn about becoming an elderly...
... about learning how old people around us try to survive in the different speed of the city ...

we'll make puppet installation in the 65 metres tunnel of Esplanade, with several videos about the elderly who works.

so, here are some photos of the video making, guys.. ;)



keep your eyes on us, fellas..
because there will be lots of good news for you in the future!! :D

see you very very very soon!!

SUPER HUGS!!
