Artist Profile

The Wayang Sunar Community is a community of young puppeteers who reside in Bali. This community developed the classical puppet show’s form into a contemporary wayang performance format. Wayang Sunar does not only perform the popular traditional wayang stories such as Ramayana and Monyeh (a story in Wayang Sasak), but also creates dialogues that are adapted from tembang or Balinese traditional songs. This tradition is our starting point in creating contemporary Wayang Sunar works.
