Mask and Puppet Theatre is a synthesis point for all art forms in microcosm. SMPC has always encouraged cross-artform collaborations and intercultural exchanges where many different creative skills and mediums can come together to create something new. Similarly, it has always been a place where artists from different disciplines can meet to share ideas and exchange skills.
Masks, puppets, magic and performing objects are tools of transformation. They are a kind of seismograph of the consciousness that we have of ourselves and others. They are unique tools of empowerment and group collaboration; keys to cross-cultural and intercultural performance and the promotion of international peace, friendship and understanding.
