Star Wars Wayang Kulit

November 2, 2018

Note: That’s not your doorbell, it’s an instrument on the soundtrack.

A Star Wars shadow puppet play (wayang kulit), explained by Malaysia’s Pak Daim, a tok dalang (master puppeteer). The Wayang Kulit tradition has entertained audiences in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Cambodia with dramas bringing folktales, Hindu mythology, and Balinese sagas to life. Pak Daim’s company and artist Tintoy Chuo created a shadow drama of the Star Wars saga using traditional techniques and instruments, with added special effects and sounds. There are shadow puppets of Stormtroopers, C-3PO, R2-D2, Princess Leia, and Darth, even an Imperial Star Destroyer.
