Wayangwong: Javanisches Schattenspiel (von R├╝ckseite)

Photograph of a Wayang stage taken from the rear. During wayang performances, the audiences would not be able to see the gamelan orchestra or the puppeteer and singer. All eyes would focus on the actions on the screen.

A typical Javanese wayang show can last several hours and requires a skilled dalang (puppeteer,) a complete gamelan, and usually a female singer to sing lines from epic poetry while the dalang voices the characters.
