Wayang Kulit inspired shadow puppets at John Curtin college of Arts, W.A

Rachel writes ‘I have been teaching shadow & rod puppet making & performing at John Curtin school of arts with year 9 gifted & talented drama students the past few weeks,  inspired by the rich Indonesian traditional heritage of Wayang Kulit & Wayang Golek. It was amazing what the talented students produced in  the short sessions we had together, they researched the traditional characters and their individual traits and meanings .  Im looking forward to the puppets being worked into stories from the Mahabharata later this year.’
