Outline

Based on the traditional Indonesian performance art of Wayang Kulit, this new theatrical art is inspired by the noh play, Ama. It aims to be a new shadow picture production in which people can experience a fantastical world that melds reality and the spirit world within the multi-tiered installation through blended shadows and the physical body.
