Based in Cape Town, South Africa, The Paper Body Collective, founded by ‘Aja Marneweck, is a co-creative  co-operative of artists who create puppetry performance through animism, ritual and multidisciplinary artistic practices.  Puppetry offers us conscious, sentient containers that can create deeply intimate metaphoric pathways into the vast and vulnerable experiences of what it is to be human and the gift of life all around us.  Puppetry is an animist tool that can be used in a wide variety of creative services to Self, Community, Humanity and the World.  It an artistic process, a form of activism, a healing practice and a powerful tool of creative potential.
