Wayang Shadow Puppets at the Museum!

June 10 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Shadow Puppets at the Museum! at the Buffalo Museum of Science will be Nusantara Arts second wayang performance in our series of three wayang performances. It will feature a 2 hour long performance of traditional Javanese wayang kulit puppetry with wayang shadow puppet master Midiyanto from Berkeley California and the musicians of Nusantara Arts. There will be ample and accessible information presented to our audiences from our character research project that will help them understand the characters and motivation that drives the story. The performance will be in a mixture of Javanese and English languages, with live translation and commentary by Kitsie Emerson. There will be a Wayang puppet making crafting station open before and during the performance for kids (and adults!) to get creative and make their own puppet to take home.

The event will be sliding scale from $10-$20, and the museum will be open during the performance with ticket purchase for the audiences enjoyment

Shadow Puppets at the Museum! will be the final event of Wayang week at the museum which will also feature a Nusantara Arts produced documentary screening about wayang kulit Shadow puppetry crafting and a presentation and discussion of Nusantara Arts research on Wayang Puppet characters.
