Art-Pacific (Carolyn Leigh - Ron Perry): Guide to Artifacts

Wayang Cycles

Plays in the wayang cycles on Java and Bali encompass mythical origins through the present. There are hundreds of plays in the repertoires. Some exist only as outlines of plots with narration, musical clues and sound effects suggested. New plays are created in some cycles or scenes added to old ones.

Java

Bali

All plays use wayang kulit for both daytime and nighttime performances.
