Javanese Wayang Kulit arrives in Coquitlam on March 25th, 2023. Witness shadows, puppets, myths, and legends come to life in this spectacular adaptation of one of the oldest forms of puppet theatre in the world. Sutrisno Hartana, a master Indonesian dalang (or puppeteer) who was appointed court musician at the Paku Alaman Palace in 2004, performs a solo version of this artform at Evergreen Cultural Centre. You will be transported to the world of gods and monsters, old Indonesian folktales and satirical stories. Come and experience the breathtaking beauty of this medium, a traditional South-east Asian treasure rarely performed in North America. It is a visual marvel that is appropriate for the whole family.
