"An Evening of Balinese Wayang" featuring Larry Reed: Wayang Bali, the Balinese Shadow Play, is one of the most revered traditional art forms in the world. According to Balinese philosophy, a wayang performance is a symbol of the cosmos. The dalang (Shadow Master) represents God; the screen represents the world and its atmosphere; the damar (oil lamp) is the sun; the banana log underneath the screen is the earth on which the creatures walk; and the wayangs (puppet characters) are the creatures. The accompanying gender music represents irama djaman, which means, "in phase with the periods of history." Plots for the shadow play are drawn from the Mahabharata myth cycle. Five brothers are pitted against one hundred jealous cousins in a struggle for power involving gods, demons, magical weapons, and a beautiful princess. Wayang Bali takes place in two languages simultaneously: the ancient language and the language of the audience. Larry Reed is able to perform wayang in English, French, Spanish, German, and Indonesian, making it possible for the Western audience to appreciate the ancient art form. Wayang Bali, the Balinese shadow play, is one of the most exciting events of world theater. Plots for Wayang Bali are drawn from the Mahabharata myth cycle, in which five brothers are pitted against one hundred jealous cousins in a struggle for power involving gods, demons, magical weapons, and the inevitable beautiful princess. Larry and the Gamelan musicians make it possible for Western audiences to enjoy this classical form of storytelling.
