Potato Head Beach Club Presents:
**WAYANG BOCOR** by Eko Nugroho 
A new take on the traditional Indonesian art form

Potato Head Beach Club is proud to present WAYANG BOCOR, a new take on a traditional Indonesian art form, by one of Indonesia’s most celebrated contemporary artists Eko Nugroho, on Friday, 29th July 2016. 

Created by Nugroho in 2008, “Wayang Bocor” was inspired by traditional Javanese puppet shows where performers cast shadows against a large screen. While keeping the original shadow puppet form, Nugroho has added new elements and characters based on his imagination and own work. 

Adding new and exciting lighting design to atmosphere of the performances,Nugroho's screen also comes in different pieces and shapes. Digital music accompanies the performance yet the most important human element of the performance is still core to “Wayang Bocor”. Actors are seen in front of the screen interacting with the puppets while a narrator, who takes on the duties of a traditional puppeteer, presents simple stories found in society today. 

With a script, actors and a narrator, “Wayang Bocor” can be performed without a dedicated puppeteer, a feature that Nugroho built in. “Wayang Bocor” is a true collaborative effort with each artist on the team – writers, directors, production managers, light technicians, music supervisors – adding in their own elements to these dynamic performances. This collaboration digs deeper into what is possible, creating a fresh contemporary puppet show that is still rich in meaning and importance.

Opening act: OGOH-OGOH by Sanggar Tari Dadong Rerod (Bali)
