Pesta Boneka is an international biennale 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.
In the last 12 years of organizing this festival, PESTA BONEKA always chooses different spaces. The last day of the festival is a day people wait for, because of all the events held in Desa Kepek, Bantul. Spectators, villagers and artists sharing and enjoying the moment in one warm place. But this time, the seventh PESTA BONEKA will be held differently.
Thanks to fellow puppet theater activists from other parts of the world and created a fun event in Yogyakarta that attracted many art lovers from all over the world. You can also support the enthusiasm of the Papermoon Puppet Theater friends through donations so that the activities run smoothly and can continue to be held every two years!
