San Francisco theater artist Larry Reed joins forces with Bališs premiere Shadow Master and one of its foremost gamelan musicians to reinvent the ancient art of shadow theater. This phantasmagoria of image, light, and sound features a cast of thirteen puppeteers, actors, and musicians, a multitude of puppets and an enormous stage-wide screen. Mercurial and luminous, Wayang Listrik once again demonstrates that Reed is a "true genius with light and motion."
