Snuff Puppet Shows

Punch Agathe in Germany 

Punch Agathe was born at Snuff Labb in Melbourne, tiny as a pin. Travelling to her homeland in Kinshasa she grows up and discovers her super powers. Eventually arriving in Germany Punch Agathe becomes a full grown super heroine, tall as a three storey building.

Over 9 days in Bochum Germany we built the inflatable 18 metre tall Punch Agathe puppet while also running our Peoples Puppet Project with young artists from Bochum and Stuttgart. Everything created was presented at FIDENA and Moers Festival.

We also had free run of an abandoned church in Bochum where pianos were dropped from great hights, breasts danced on the alter, mole rats appeared from tunnels under the church floor and Punch Agathe ruled supreme.

Snuff Puppets return to Kinshasa

In March 2018, we returned to Kinshasa to run a second People’s Puppet Project with our collaborators; Espace Masolo and Gütesigel Kultur.

Over eight days we worked with 30 artists and created an outdoor theatre spectacle based on the young life of Punch Agathe.

The work was performed at three locations in Kinshasa; Gare Central, Kinkole and Espace Masolo.

This video was shot on the road outside the gates of the Espace Masolo arts centre.

This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
