Wayang Puppet Show and Gamelan Performance
October 15 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Nusantara Arts presents ““Rajasuya! The Great or Evil Offering of 100 Kings,” Wayang Puppet Show and Gamelan Performance at the Buffalo Museum of Science.
Wayang kulit is a traditional form of puppet-shadow play from the cultures of Java and Bali in Indonesia. Wayang kulit performances are traditional and wildly popular multi-genre performances still practiced today on Java. They combine virtuosic shadow puppetry, enrapturing gamelan music, comedy, philosophy, and civic engagement. Performances in Java are normally 8 hours; this event will be scaled to a 2-hour feast for the senses.
Doors open 4:30pm | Performances 5:00 – 7:00pm
$25 Adults, $10 Children, $22 Seniors/Students/Military
