Wayang Kulit is a form of traditional performance art, native to Javanese, Balinese and Lombok cultures in South-East Asia. It is quite a stunner of a puppet show, where carved leather figures are played against light to cast shadows from on a taut linen screen. It has been around for centuries and this much-loved artform is now spreading out from Indonesia to the rest of Asia.
Wayang Kulit is especially known for telling elaborate and meaningful stories with the help of shadow puppetry. On any given day, if you walk into a theatre hosting a Wayang Kulit show, there is a high chance it might be about a story from the Hindu epics, Ramayana and Mahabharata, or stories of the Indonesian hero, Amir Hamzah.
