Puppeteering

-. Herbert Finds A Home
Kassie Jones A tale of a hermit crab named Herbert who finds himself homeless with no friends to help him find a new shell. He roams the beach looking for shelter and on the way meets some interesting characters. Herbert has lots of important lessons to learn before he can see the true value of friendship and find place he can call home. Told through Modern Wayang, inspired by the Javanese Wayang Kancil of Ki Ledjar Subroto. Suitable for family audiences.

This modern wayang is performed and written by Kassie Jones. A graduate of East15 World Performance, Kassie performed at IKON 2017 and was part of the puppeteer team in the acclaimed production Lara, and also the U.K. Indonesia 70th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations at Cadogan Hall.

Her stories are inspired by Indonesian endangered species and have made their way to bookshelves in Bali, America, and the UK, a significant first step towards Felicia's dreams of these books being enjoyed by children around the world.

In 2017 she took on the challenge of reading her books to a live audience at the Imagine Festival in Southbank, London.  It was at this point that Felicia became a storyteller too. This new profession has taken her across the globe to perform in France and Indonesia. In 2018 the Indonesian government - through the Department of Education and Culture - funded her to go to Yogyakarta for 2 months to learn puppeteering or mendalang.

She learned how to tell story using wayang kulit (shadow puppet). At this year's IKON she is going to try-out her puppeteering in a performance of her latest book, "Ada apa, Anoa/What's up, Anoa".
