Since 2012, The Brothers Čampur—puppeteers Putu Rekayasa and Panji Wilimantara, theatre artist Sam Jay Gold, and ethnomusicologist Ian Coss—have presented Balinese shadow puppetry to audiences in both Indonesia and the United States. Wayang Kulit, this traditional form of shadow-puppetry, brings together elements from Bali's rich cultural traditions: Hindu epics, complex music, leather carving, ritual, dance, and slap-stick comedy.Witness heroes rescue loved ones, clowns fight demons, and gods crack jokes about Twitter and Instagram — all from the shadows.

A family-friendly performance, enjoy an up-close and personal experience followed by a puppet demonstration, question-answer session, and the chance to interact with the puppeteers and puppets.
