Wayang Kulit with Sofari and Tom

Presented by Tom and Sofari, the Wayang Kulit, is a puppetry performance using traditional hand carved shadow puppets from Java, Indonesia! The Indonesian words wayang (shadow or ghost) and kulit (leather or skin) define the two-dimensional Puppets that are flat, translucent figures cut out from leather and projected against a screen. The mystical manipulation between the light and screen creates a ‘living’ silhouette, and theatrical storytelling brings to life the ancestral spirits which are said to dwell within the puppets. The Climactic scenes are based on Hindu epics such as the Ramayama cycle. Find out about Indonesian characters and community through this compelling and ghostly medium.

Testimonial
The presenter is a very welcoming and engaging man. His show was very authentic to Indonesian culture and had the children interested and engaged. He was happy to answer questions at the end of the program and he was easy to work with when setting up.
