One of the great things about the Balinese arts is that there is a
tradition of interactivity between the audience and performers. That
is what we plan for this performance providing a taste of a temple
celebration complete with gamelan musicians, dancers shadow
puppetry and other elements. Sit on the stage, get up to take a
closer look at something interesting and learn a bit more about this
fascinating art form. Gamelan Segara Madu (lit. “The Sea of Honey”), is the UH-Manoa Balinese Gamelan Ensemble.

I Madé Moja comes from Batuan, a traditional arts village in Bali, known for its classical music and dance, fine woodcarving and unique painting style. Moja ‘s paintings have been shown internationally and featured in numerous books detailing the art and culture of Bali. He inherited his talent for dance from his acclaimed mother, Ni Madé Dawan, and grandfather, I Nyoman Kakul - who is widely considered to be the island’s foremost classical dance master of the 20th century. Since moving to the Bay Area, Moja has become a primary dancer with Gamelan Sekar Jaya, a celebrated Balinese orchestra and dance group. Moja has also worked extensively with ShadowLight Productions, a non-profit theater company based in San Francisco that takes its inspiration from classical Indonesian “wayang kulit” (shadow puppet theater). Over the past several years, Moja has created stunning set designs and puppets, and performed a variety of roles including Art Director.
