About:

The Art of Topeng Dance is a deep and ancient one, full of colour and life. Francis Gilfedder, known as Made Balik in Bali, has received an Indonesian Government Scholarship to study Mask dances of Bali and Java, and he presents the many characters from the Old stories, from the vain and well-dressed King of Bali, a slightly feral but dignified Old Minister who has fleas, and the strong and decisive Patih. There are also clowns both silent and talking, and a few contemporary masked characters. Students learn the basic poses of different masked characters including monkeys, and the show finishes off with a group dance that is fun and easy to learn.
