Sundanese & Javanese Puppet Plays
Apr 27, 2013
The Indonesian Performing Arts & Public Life Symposium concludes as the Wesleyan Gamelan Ensemble, under the direction of I.M. Harjito, and guest musicians accompany two genres of Indonesian puppet play: Sundanese “wayang golek” and Javanese “wayang kulit”. Using three-dimensional rod puppets from the West Javanese puppetry tradition, guest puppeteer Kathy Foley will tell stories drawn from the epic “Mahabharata.” Sumarsam will tell a story from the same epic, using two-dimensional puppets from the Central Javanese puppetry tradition.
The Indonesian Performing Arts & Public Life Symposium is part of “Music & Public Life,” a year-long campus and community-wide exploration, celebrating and studying the sounds, words, and spirit of music at the local, national, and transnational levels through concerts, workshops, gatherings, and courses, all designed to cross disciplines.
