Join us for an evening of traditional and experimental Balinese 
shadow theater. Based on an interpretation of the Hindu Mahabarata 
epic by renowned Indonesian author and journalist Goenawan Mohamad, 
=B3Wayang Kali=B2 tells the story of Kali, the Goddess of Death.

Directed by master Balinese artist and Indonesia Institute of the 
Arts faculty member I Madé Sidia, =B3Wayang Kali=B2 combines traditional 
Indonesian shadow puppet techniques with experimental theater and new 
music, in collaboration with musicians and writers in America 
including Shahzad Ismaily, Eyvind Kang, Jessika Kenney, Ches Smith, 
Andrew McGraw and Jenni Quilter.

The experimental, 45 minute Wayang Kali performance will be preceded 
by a short performance of traditional shadow theater accompanied by 
the Balinese gamelan orchestra performed by members of Gamelan Dharma
