All the plays are the result of the 2017/2018 edition of Charcoal for Children workshops. Living up to its title ‘PlayPlay’, this second edition held three workshops in the span of September to November 2017, conducted by the aforementioned performing artists.

Each workshop used different methods of creativity. Papermoon Puppet invited children to tell stories about trees in various ways by asking them to make trees and dolls using charcoal sticks, charcoal ink, waste woods, and newspapers. With Kohey, children learned more about the art of shadow play, to make shadow puppets, using cardboard, charcoal, DNA paint. Monez & Ninuz used music for children to experiment, moving their bodies to the music while holding charcoal in both hands, scratching it along the white paper to make a free drawing.

‘LagiLagi’ (translates to ‘repeatedly’, ‘again and again’, ‘keep returning back’) is a social initiative started by CushCush, a design studio and workshop in Bali that specializes in uniquely designed crafted contemporary furniture, accessories, and artworks. LagiLagi was meant to carry both CushCush’s environmental awareness and social mission of passing the goodness of creativity to the next generation, starting from the early age.
