The Performers of the Chinese Opera or Wayang ~ 3

Hopefully back to normal internet speed after scanning, etc as from today – Saturday, August 26, 2017.  I was listening to the “Test Transmission” radio with Beatles, Carlos Santana included and I was watching TV, DVD’s as no steady internet for the last 5 days.

Wayang Kulit or Shadow Puppet Show ~ Act 2   Leave a comment


Wayang Kulit or Shadow Puppet Show ~ Act 2

Wayang (Krama Javanese: “Shadow”), also known as Wajang, is a form of puppet theatre art found in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia, wherein a dramatic story is told through shadows thrown by puppets and sometimes combined with human characters. The art form celebrates the Indonesian culture and artistic talent, its origins are traced to medieval era spread of Hinduism and the arrival of leather-based puppet arts called Tholu bommalata from southern India.

Wayang refers to the entire dramatic show. Sometimes the leather puppet itself is referred to as wayang. Performances of shadow puppet theatre are accompanied by a gamelan orchestra in Java, and by gender wayang in Bali. The dramatic stories play out mythologies, such as episodes from the Hindu epics the Ramayana, the Mahabharata as well as local adaptions of cultural legends. Traditionally, a wayang is played out in a ritualized midnight to dawn show by a dalang – an artist and spiritual leader, and people watch the show from both sides of the screen.

UNESCO designated wayang kulit, a shadow puppet theatre and the best known of the Indonesian wayang, as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity on 7 November 2003. In return for the acknowledgment, UNESCO required Indonesians to preserve their heritage. Wayang has also been a significant historical art form in MalaysiaThailandCambodia and Laos.
