Event Description

Concert of traditional music from central Java with a special performance of Javanese shadow puppets:


The Javanese wayang kulit or wayang purwa (shadow-play with flat leather puppets) is one of the great dramatic forms of the Southeast Asia. Above and beyond its value as a wonderful entertainment, it is important to the Javanese as a ceremony that provides a means of contact with the ancestral spirits and establishes an atmosphere of serenity and balance. It is also an important means of educating the young in the wisdom of the culture and employs, as a frame of reference, deep philosophical and mystical ideas. Sumarsam, director, with special guest artist I. M. Harjito.

Free and open to the public.
