Subali-Sugriwa: Battle of the Monkey Kings

Balinese Wayang Listrik

UHM Kennedy Theatre, January 22-31, 2016

Director: Dr. Kirstin Pauka

A powerful demon wants a beautiful goddess for his wife. Legendary monkey brothers Subali and Sugriwa are enlisted to help the gods repel the rejected suitor’s armies in a story told through wayang listrik, a modern Balinese theatre genre that blends shadow puppetry (wayang kulit), dance and music. Traditional carved leather puppets, actors as shadow puppets, Balinese dance, and a live gamelan orchestra share the stage.
