Balinese Shadow Puppetry


Last night I went to a Shadow Puppetry performance, from the Balinese tradition. It was really cool, and they sang in this ancient language that has died but for these performances. The translator characters were pretty comical - these buck-toothed English-speakers, in ridiculously casual language for the formalness of all the rest of it. If any of you ever get the chance, I'd recommend checking out a performance.

At Reed, it was a Grey Fund event (read: free!) in the chapel.
