Event Details

Featuring punakawan (clown characters), dramatic love scenes, and epic battles, this story comes to life through shadow puppetry, stylized acting and dance, all accompanied by original live gamelan music.

Adapted by I Ketut Wirtawan, and I Made Moja, two of Bali’s most dedicated and respected artists, the story is set on a small island neighboring Bali during a traditional Hindu ceremony.

When Dalem Bungkut causes chaos, disrupting the ceremony and causing sickness and misery among the people, the village leader must travel to Bali to request the assistance of King Dalem Dimade in driving out the demon. The king agrees to help and sends his trusted minister to challenge the demon in an epic battle of physical might, technical skill, and spiritual powers. Will the revered Last King of Bali and his emissaries have the power to overcome the demon?

Tickets: $25. Seniors, military, UH faculty/staff $20.
