1200° is a cinematic non-verbal puppetry and pottery performance with ASMR sounds.

Papermoon Puppet Theatre had a new experimentation on medium, and in 1200° , all of the puppets they made were made out of ceramic.

In this piece, they embraced the sound from the materials, from surroundings. The piece would like to give the audience time to pause and to appreciate every little sound around through ASMR sounds they used.

1200° is a story about pursuing a dream, how a creation tries to make itself… itself.



A little head made out of clay woke up, and found that the body parts that were put for it, was not what was supposed to be. The little head tried to dig, to find the body parts that would meet its expectation. With lots of help from its friends, the little head had a journey to be comforted by its own choices.

1200° was premiered as part of the closing Program Peduli by The Asia Foundation. Program Peduli was initiated by The Asia Foundation to facilitate and empower marginal communities in Indonesia, including transgender communities, people with different abilities, indigenous people who live in Indonesian jungle, etc.

Papermoon Puppet Theatre started the process of 1200° by doing workshop with transgender communities in Yogyakarta.
