Ramayana 2016

August 29, 2016

This year, we were fortunate to share the stage with really awesome musicans from Solo, to support a production of the Ramayana incorporating Javanese dance and contemporary shadow puppetry. This was staged as the closing of the Malay Heritage Centre’s Javanese Exhibition, presented in collaboration with the Javanese Association. Big shout out to our collaborators Gamelan Asmaradana and Gamelan Naga Kencana, as well as the tech, staging, and logistical crews that made the production possible.

The video, by Haiqal Tahir and Matin Haiqal is on youtube:

And here are some behind the scenes rehearsal shots, also taken by Haiqal:
