Shadowlight Production: Theater (Shadow Puppetry)

In this Spark video produced by KQED, follow puppet master Larry Reed as he and the Gamelan Sekar Jaya orchestra prepare for a performance. Wayang kulit, or Balinese shadow puppet theater, is a tradition that has been passed down through generations for more than 1,000 years. Mythic tales and archetypal characters are played out, blending high drama, improvisation and slapstick comedy.
