Students in the UNH theatre and dance program collaborated with the world-renowned Papermoon Puppet Theatre to create an original production, Sematakaki, inspired by the gruesome hidden history of Indonesia during the Cold War. The story was brought to life on the Johnson Theatre stage.

Papermoon was in residence at UNH through the generous support of the Woodward Institute for Drama and Dance, which sponsored the residency and production. Cultural Stages: The Woodward International Drama and Dance Initiative aims to promote a greater understanding of world cultures through drama and dance. Ellis Woodward graduated from UNH with the class of 1974.
