BWP Press, Los Angeles CA.... GV12  WAYANG KULIT: Shadow Puppet Theater of Bali DVD

 

Located just 8 degrees south of the equator and 2 miles east of Java is an Indonesian Island so celebrated in legend that the mere mention of its name conjures up images of mystery and excitement. That magical place is Bali, Indonesia. Traveling 1/2 way around the world to a completely different culture, multi award-winning filmmaker Bob Bryan discovered the fantastic  Wayang Kulit Shadow Puppet Theater.

 

In this wonderful presentation, Bob shares the  live shadow play (performed in it’s entirety on-location in Bali, Indonesia) for all of us to experience and enjoy. Wayang is the Indonesian word for theater (literally means “shadow”). Kulit  means skin (the puppets are made of leather). The Dalang  or Master Puppeteer is believed to  communicate between the physical and spiritual world. The Dalang  brings the puppets to life while simultaneously singing, speaking all the voices of the characters & tapping out all the cues for the musicians.

 

These Shadow Puppets are thought by the Balinese people to possess amazing mystical & spiritual powers.  Believe it or not, the amazing Wayang Kulit performances date back over 800 years.   All Shadow Puppet plays are accompanied by the Gamelan Orchestra which is composed of musicians & instruments as a distinct entity.  The word Gamelan comes from the Javanese word Gamels, meaning “to strike or hammer”.

 

The Shadow Puppet characters usually speak in 3 languages:

 

· God’s & High Class Characters speak “Kawi” (Ancient Javanese)

· Servants speak “High Balinese”

· Characters addressing the Audience “Modern Balinese & English”.

 

This Wayang Kulit performance and its characters are based upon the Indian(n) Epic “The Mahabharata”  composed between 300 BC and 200 AD, which is the longest work in world literature. Over 3 times as long as the Bible… it is oftentimes referred to as “the great story of India.” For centuries Wayang Kulit was Bali’s version of Cinema…. considered by many a sacred ritual.    Enjoy!

What is Public Performance Rights (PPR)?

The Exhibition or  Screening of this Video in a Public Setting requires the venue, establishment, or in some cases the individual to secure an additional license, The Public Performance License. The basic concept here is that if you, your class or Institution are going to benefit from the Performance of a Producer's Work, the Producer should also benefit. These additional PPR fees collected by the Libraries or Educational Institutions  are paid to the Producer as compensation for the performance of their works within a Public Arena i.e.: Classroom, Rental Facility, Library, Auditorium or part of a Public Presentation for paying customers or for free.
