“The piece is well crafted, incredibly nuanced and extremely bittersweet. Against an intricate and mobile set, the performers skillfully manipulate the puppets with precision and finesse, taking the audience through a sensitive journey that is not overtly sentimental.The moment of stillness also give us space to reflect on the certainty of time and the fragility of life.The piece is not about death. Instead, it is a hopeful poem reminding us that the ones we love will never leave us. Death ends a life, not a relationship.”
Caleb Lee,Researcher of Southeast Asian Theatre for Young Audience, Singapore.
PUNO (Letters To The Sky) is an original play by Papermoon Puppet Theatre about dealing with losing the beloved one.
Got inspired by a loss of parents, brother, best friend, and child, this play is dedicated to the people who missed their beloved one who already passed away.
PUNO (Letters To The Sky) is inviting audience from age 7+ to learn how to feel the loss as an emotional experience, so we could appreciate what we have today.
Tala is a little girl trying to cope with the departure of her beloved father, Puno. As a young girl who has lost her father, she feels anger and sadness at the thought of being neglected by her loved one. She writes about her feelings towards her father, but she could never sent it…
Until, she finds out that the souls of your loved ones remain around for 40 days after their death. Now, Tala has the chance to live alongside her father Puno for 40 more days. Will Tala share with Puno the contents of her letter? How will she say goodbye to him at the end of 40 days?
