Indonesia is now going up the economy. Although in my heart sometimes was made miris with news I heard from soil water. But there is a sense of pride, too, occasionally known to come from developing countries. Understandably during This my always been considered coming from poor country.
But this time I want to tell you is the success achieved wayang kulit troupe led by leading masterminds Purbo Asmoro.
The arrival of entourage wayang leather it in order 'festival de l'imaginaire'. Where some performances coming from several countries doing their performasi in Paris. From Indonesian, wayang kulitlah which displayed. Great surprise!
Since the first day the event started, visitors very dense. On Wednesday (03.20.2013) at 15.00, a puppet show is much visited by families in particular, make the kid to be fascinated French teenagers!
White screen which illuminated by small lights make shadows carving tree, figures puppetry became alive is played by dalang. Something that makes the audience captivated.
Which me amazed is, precisely kid-children around the age 3 to 5 years here's which with enthusiasm, following the puppet show leather which lasted during 2 hours. They is allowed for go up go down the stage, see from close how the dalang famous Purbo Asmoro, plays the wayang figure his skin with voice who changed-change.
Musical instruments gamelan and pesinden Ibu Suyatmi which shrill with the exquisite, not only make children-child alone who made transfixed however a few visitors adult else until made curious, and followup go up the stage to see directly behind the screen.

And who interesting is a translator Kahryn Emerson, which directly translate dialog to the audience passing special screen.
Apparently Thursday (21/03/2013) night was full of performances returning. Spectators who come are French society. I saw some of Indonesian people, who attended as invited guests. The rest they who come because of enthusiastic and an interest want to witnessed wayang leather, that's which makes me proud.
They eagerly pay 22 euros for a show ticket prices. And of course, those who bought the tickets come because of curiosity and really want to see live puppet show behind the scenes.
Some spectators present as it ever come to Indonesia and have seen a puppet show in Java. Can look back like a puppet show for their nostalgia.
The rest claimed to come because of curiosity with Indonesian art and not wanting to miss a golden opportunity to directly see the show from leading puppeteer with his entourage.
Performances wayang kulit in Paris lasted during 4 days it in a in 'ThÃ©Ã¢tre de Soleil-Cartoucherie'. In which the in arena Cartoucherie this there are some big theater and very unique.
Upon entering the building from the region Cartocherie theaters this alone makes present the visitor immediately carried away. I captured the picture is a large garden with the presence of several buildings, which is used as a theater. For example, ThÃ©Ã¢tre du Soleil, a place wayang leather lasted, has a roof looming with as fugitives iron, is like an headquarters military.
Indeed, this is a once Cartoucherie weapons factory complete with powder for the manufacture of bullets. Since 1970 by Ariane Mnouchkine this factory taken over and made into a place theater where himself worked together with Philippe Leotard which constitute the founder thÃ©Ã¢tre du soleil since 1964.
Beautiful theater is already making its own charm. We were given a written information that fully explains about the tradition of wayang kulit, gamelan accompaniment, division 3 section of the show that took place, and many other new honest I know exactly when it was.
There a sense of shame in the liver because my knowledge is new increased concurrently with the spectators the French. Before the event started a committee to explain the course of the show, and whether it is for traditional shadow puppets of Indonesia, especially Java.
As he explained, the audience is allowed up and down the stage to see directly behind the screen. Things that make visitors of course very happy to get the chance. Unfortunately, the committee prohibits taking pictures or photos although not using the flash. I was disappointed, too, was made ...
Till Friday, welcome spectators always the same, enthusiastic and listened with full attention. Saturday was the culmination of leather puppet show. Times it does not half-hearted, performances all-night with tale the collapse of kingdom Kaurawa be played dalang. And visitors still full!
Some spectators came with the children. Indeed, there are also some spectators who had left the show before it was over. The rest survive and continue to enjoy the event to complete. Something to be proud of.
This is the for the the first time visitors the French witnessing a traditional performances all-night. Of course I felt very touched by the enthusiasm of the French art lovers. And more was touched a day after the the first show, news about the show wayang this leather appeared in several media the mass the French, with the title performances a spectacular from ancient traditions Javan.
