INTRODUCTION TO THE ART OF
WAYANG

MAKE BALINESE SHADOW PUPPET

We will explore the local Balinese tradition through one of the most classic and most important performance called Wayang or the shadow puppets. Renowned for its elaborate puppets and complex musical styles, this ancient form of storytelling originated on the Indonesian island of Java back few centuries ago and spread out all over Indonesia including Bali where this performance is become part of the Island's tradition

 

In Bali, Although the story performed is mostly ancient Hindus epic such as Mahabarata or Ramayana,  this Wayang performance, especially Wayang Kulit which is made of leather, is still one of people's entertainment favorite with its nowadays jokes that are inserted by the puppeteers during the show. On this Online Experience we will create Wayang characters with simple tools; paper, water colors, scissors ect. While the host will share some Balinese philosophy that is often implicit on this Wayang culture. This Experience is perfect to do with children for fun and educative activity as the same time.
