Sundanese three-dimensional rod-puppet plays (wayang golek) and two-dimensional Javanese shadow-puppet plays (wayang kulit) are two of the well-known cultural performances in Indonesia. Kathy Foley, Professor of Theatre Arts at the University of California, Santa Cruz and Institute of Sacred Music Fellow at Yale University, and Wesleyan University Professor of Music Sumarsam will talk about performance technique and musical accompaniment of the plays.
