Sneak-Peek of WARNA in Development
Gamelan Sekar Jaya brings forty performers to the Julia Morgan Theater stage to present an evening performance of lush and breathtaking pieces for Balinese gamelan and dance. The audience will be treated to the thrilling interlocking melodies of the bronze gong kebyar ensemble, as well as the moody dynamics of the virtuosic gender wayang batel ensemble. The evening-length performance will include traditional works including Tabuh Pat Jagul, Legong Pengleb, Jauk, Sekar Ginotan, Macan Ngerum, and the World Premiere of "WARNA" (translating to both "color" and "caste"), an interdisciplinary and intercultural work by Sekar Jaya's resident Balinese Artistic Directors Ni Ketut Arini, and I Made Subandi. "TARI WARNA," a dance work set to the gender wayang batel ensemble with Balinese vocals, that pushes the boundaries of traditional and contemporary aesthetics as it explores love through the lens of caste and caste difference. "TABUH KREASI WARNA WARNI," an instrumental work by I Made Subandi for gong kebyar with western instrument accompaniment is a wild new creation by one of Bali's foremost composers. Come see for yourself why Spin Magazine said "Sekar Jaya rocks like a wild hog storming through the forest."
Don't miss this rare opportunity to see the premiere of an exciting new work by two of Bali's leading artists!
