In 2019 Katkatha has curated and created multiple sensorial and interactive exhibitions that hero the puppet.

2019 Shadow Walk commissioned by Serendipity Arts Festival in Goa and curated by Anurupa Roy was a journey through shadow puppetry of ancient traditional leather forms to modern day shadow puppet applications and animation toys. The exhibition included puppets and talks and videos by puppeteers Sadananda and Lakshmanan Pullavar, Gunduraju and S. Chidambara Rao.


In 2022 Katkatha created Mumbai in a Box, a sensorial puppet exhibition for children supported by the Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sanghralaya in Mumbai. The exhibition looked at Mumbai through a labyrinth of stories and history of the cities, a textured walk through the mangroves, interactive peep shows and installations.


Also in 2022 Katkatha collaborated with the Goethe Institute Library in the Infinite Libraries Project, a virtual reality project including a puppet exhibition, shadow puppets in VR, lec-dems by master puppeteers and films on shadow puppetry.
