Pesta Boneka is an international biennial puppet festival in Yogyakarta, which was initiated by the Papermoon Puppet Theatre back in 2008. In every performance, Pesta Boneka brings together puppeteers, audiences, as well as creative communities to experience various stories and cultures intimately and creatively. Pesta Boneka envelops its audience with a sense of warmth, displaying an awe-inspiring movement of puppets acting as living objects, telling various heart-wrenching stories, world culture, as well as local wisdom to its loyal audience.
Creating an international puppet festival during a pandemic is certainly not an easy matter for the Papermoon Puppet Theatre team. The program was later adapted to the 'theatre stage' that we use today. A virtual cross country stage. Carrying a virtual journey, it was noted that at least 30 groups / individual artists from 25 countries will be part of PESTA BONEKA by staging their work virtually, which will be followed by an artist's talk that involves audience participation after the performance.
