Celebrate Diwali "The Festival of Lights" with Studebaker Theater! Multi-headed creatures, talking animals, boastful demons, and other unforgettable characters spring to life! Upon a backdrop of intricate and lively shadow puppetry (Wayang Kulit), this modern dance theatre reworks the ancient epic Ramayana: a classic tale that spans across cultures. Movement artists from India, Java, Bali, and Khmer cultures tell the story using the entire body—hand gestures, complex footwork and facial expressions—to recreate demons and heroes.
