Wayang Bali, the Balinese shadow play, is one of the most revered traditional art forms in the world.

Larry Reed and the Gamelan musicians make it possible for Western audiences to enjoy this classical form of storytelling.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Larry Reed is a nationally and internationally acclaimed theatre artist and is a trailblazer in the contemporary shadow theatre field. In 1972, he founded ShadowLight Productions to nurture indigenous shadow theatre traditions, as well as to explore and expand the possibilities of the shadow theatre medium. He is one of the first Westerners to have trained in the traditional Balinese shadow theatre (wayang kulit) and is a “dalang,” or “shadow master,” who manipulates over 20 carved leather shadow puppets while simultaneously serving as the conductor of the accompanying gamelan orchestra, the director, and the stage manager.
