Punch Agathe is a transglobal superheroine who was born in Melbourne, grew up in the Congo, died in Germany and was reborn into the Universe.
Initially conceived at a People’s Puppet Project in Kinshasa, DRC in 2017, her list of exploits and adventures is ever-growing, aided and abetted by the ever-expanding global network of artists she has built up around her. She’s become a computer game, gained an AI brain, and become a citizen of the Republic of Uzupis, all the while surrounded by a cast of strange puppet characters and extravagant sub-plots.
Punch was our first work in collaboration with Stefanie Oberhoff. Post pandemic we would love to host them both back in Melbourne and pick up on a cancelled return to Kinshasa.
