World Premiere | Australia | Indonesia

Stunning imagery and live music turn the traditional art form of wayang kulit on its head as Indonesian Australian artist Jumaadi and his collaborators reinvigorate the ancient storytelling technique of shadow play.

Perahu-Perahu, which means ‘boats’ in Indonesian, explores the precarious relationship between humans and the sea. Inspired by the history of travel across the waters separating Indonesia and Australia, Perahu-Perahu is a surreal and magical adventure into new lands, bizarre encounters, triumph and peril.

Immersing audiences in an exquisite world of images crafted from hundreds of intricate cut-outs and compositions blending traditional and contemporary music, this satirical and playful new performance work is a captivating fusion of old and new.
