The shadow puppet or wayang performance is a UNESCO-recognized puppet theatre show of Javanese heritage.

In the old days, performing at major social celebrations, the puppeteer or dalang would sit behind a screen and an oil lamp orchestrating the movement of the wayang figures’ shadows while narrating stories of classic Hindu tales.

Today, although wayang plays are few and far between, this traditional cultural expression remains one of Indonesia’s most celebrated art forms. For those that have yet to see a wayang show, it is worth paying a visit.
