Many fish and a hard-shelled crab live in the tenuous harmony of a watering hole. When the rain forgets to fall and drought seeps in like a poison, a hungry heron takes stock of the scene. Concocting fraudulent fantasies and age-old resentments against the outliers among us, a harebrained tyrant with orange eyes marks his next meal…
The Bali Purnati Center for the Arts, the Agung Rai Museum of Art Culture Xchange Program, and Rumah Sanur Creative Hub present the world premiere of The Heron & the Fish, a new mystical dance-drama by Artist in Residence Evan Silver in collaboration with performers, musicians and designers from across the Indonesian archipelago. Based on the folk tale from Central Java, The Heron & the Fish is now brought to life by a dynamic ensemble of artists.
The show also features puppets designed by Marmar Herayukti (Bali) and a mask carved by the director (United States). The show is stage managed by Nuy Darmadjaja (Jakarta). Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
