a jaw dropping girl names FRAU.

After years been thinking and talking about the idea of making "a thing" togehter with a girl names Leilani, finally the time is here!

Lani- which is the one and only musician at FRAU- will launch her second album that will make your mind flying around.

It's not hard to work with this lovely lady, since we have the common thing : 
love to perform in an intimate space, with an intimate feeling, in front of not so many people.

So here we are..
Papermoon Puppet Theatre will be the artistic team for FRAU's second album launch.

See you in the venue, lovely people!!

don't forget to bring your best ear and heart!

MWATHIRIKA will have one to Darwin, Australia for Darwin Festival 2013.


Papermoon Puppet Theatre

Origin Indonesia
Papermoon Puppet Theatre brings its exquisite blend of visual arts and theatre to Darwin Festival. This innovative Indonesian company takes an artform most often associated with children’s stories and uses it to uncover a country’s dark history in a charming fairy tale style.
Inspired by the events of the infamous ‘Year of Living Dangerously’ in Indonesia, Mwathirika explores themes of identity and society. It uncovers some of the turmoil and upheaval that occurred in the transition to modern-day Indonesia through thought-provoking stories that are highly relatable and ultimately uplifting. Using the whimsy and seeming innocence of beautiful, simple puppets and minimal dialogue, Papermoon Puppet Theatre has created a unique multimedia performance that goes beyond the actual historical events to explore the personal side of history and its effects on the family.
Original, imaginative and utterly stunning, Mwathirikatells the hidden and forbidden story of a nation. Though the events themselves were harrowing, Papermoon Puppet Theatre tells its story with such tenderness and beauty that it will linger long in the hearts and minds of those who experience it.
Discover Papermoon Puppet Theatre as they rove around Festival sites, creating enchanting one-on-one performances for children and adults alike.
Supported by the Consulate of the Republic of Indonesia.


"Papermoon Puppet Theatre has transformed puppets the way graphic novels changed comics: taking a popular form too often dismissed as child's play and making it intellectually challenging, emotionally chilling, and visualy bold."
