A collaboration between Papermoon Puppet Theatre and Retrofuturisten, Germany
A theatre piece combining puppetry, animation, and video, created by Papermoon and Retrofuturisten of Germany, Senlima was performed in Indonesia, Italy, and Germany. The performance explores borders, in both the outside world and inside of ourselves, as an older man goes out on a quest to find his beloved lost bird. The project was supported by the Goethe-Institut and the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts in Berlin.
“Two puppetry companies as well as puppetry students were put together to create a project and a show. An exciting task! 14,141 kilometers and 14 country borders between them. Different continents, cultures, different ways of working and perspectives, different worlds meet and invent something new. What combines all the people? Where do they find a common language? Are there still cultural borders when everybody has access to the same media and information all the time, world-wide?”
