What is wayang?

Wayang (Krama Javanese: Ringgit “Shadow”), also known as Wajang, is a form of puppet theatre art found in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia. In a dramatic story, Wayang told through shadows thrown by puppets and sometimes combined with human characters. The art form celebrates the Indonesian culture and artistic talent; its origins are traced to the spread of Hinduism in the medieval era and the arrival of leather-based puppet arts called ‘Tholu bommalata’ from southern India.

Wayang refers to the entire dramatic show. Sometimes the leather puppet itself referred to as wayang. Performances of shadow puppet theatre are accompanied by a gamelan orchestra in Java, and by gender wayang in Bali. The dramatic stories depict mythologies, such as episodes from the Hindu epics the Ramayana, the Mahabharata as well as local adaptations of cultural legends. Traditionally, an artist and spiritual leader called Dalang play out wayang in a ritualized midnight-to-dawn show; people watch the show from both sides of the screen.

UNESCO designated wayang kulit, a shadow puppet theatre and the best known of the Indonesian wayang, as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity on 7 November 2003. In return for the acknowledgment, UNESCO required Indonesians to preserve their heritage.

Course outline
