WAYANG BALI: BALINESE SHADOW PLAY
Saturday, November 22 8:00pm
$20 door / $17 advance
Performed by Artistic Director and Shadow Master Larry Reed
Wayang Bali, the Balinese shadow play, is one of the most exciting undiscovered events of world theater. Until recently, language barriers have kept its drama and humor hidden from the world at large. Plots for Wayang Bali are drawn from the Mahabharata myth cycle, in which five brothers are pitted against one hundred jealous cousins in a struggle for power involving gods, demons, magical weapons, and the inevitable beautiful princess. Larry and the Gamelan musicians make it possible for Western audiences to enjoy this classical form of storytelling adding contemporary humor & references to the traditional stories.
Doors open 25 minutes before the concert. And, YES! There is free parking!
