Enter the world of the wayang – traditional Indonesian shadow puppetry.

The epic tales of the wayang contain all the essentials of life: heroism, betrayal, skullduggery and far-fetched obscure absurdities. All with lashings of humour, magic, a touch of philosophy and the odd battle scene thrown in for good measure. These epics are told through the medium of light and shadow, with gamelan music providing the ethereal backing to take you to that other world.

Wayang Shadow Play is for everyone who loves a rollicking good story.
