Music Puppetry Theatre

South America, Argentina, Buenos Aires

Matemurga was founded in August 2002. Its founder and director, Edith Scher, is an Argentinian writer, musician, academic and actress. The works of Matemurga centre community singing and music, with the use of orchestras and puppets. For Matemurga, community theatre is theatre created specifically by neighbours and performed for neighbours. Through her approach and methodology, Edith Scher not only conducts and facilitates participatory art practices with groups and communities, but also creates community in the process of doing so.
