Manju is a multidisciplinary artist. She runs Kabutar Arts (formerly Kabutar Shadow Theatre Co.) and uses animated shadows, paper crafting, illustration and the expression of malleable art to create stories in all aspects of life. She aims to make theatre happen anywhere whether it be in a display case or on an open stage.
Manju has worked considerably in education in inspiring children to create their own animated stories both with shadow images and other props. She teaches a number of craft activities including glass and textiles.
She first worked with Anna within Kabutar on educational projects, in museums and schools and in teacher’s workshops and has since also been a participant in the creation of Indigo Moon’s The Worm that Squirmed, The Lost Forest & Alice & the White Rabbit.
