WAYANG WONG

Sanggar Sateiya Lelana Batuan -Sukawati -Gianyar

Wayang wong, also known as Wayang orang (literally 'human wayang)', is a type of classical Javanese dance theatrical performance with themes taken from episodes of the Ramayana or Mahabharata. Performances are stylised, reflecting Javanese court culture: Wayang wong dance drama in the central Javanese Kraton (royal court) of Yogyakarta represents the epitome of Javanese aesthetic unity.

It is total theatre involving dance, drama, music, visual arts, language, and literature. A highly cultured sense of formality permeates every aspect of its presentation.[1] Despite being heavily associated with Javanese tradition, the variants of wayang wong dance drama are also can be found in neighboring ethnics traditions, including Balinese and in Sundanese traditions.
