Wayang Akara, an Innovative Art Presentation

Wayang Akara an Innovative Art PresentationPresentation of this kind of puppet art is really creative and very dynamic. One puppet is played by puppeteer who is skillful at dancing. They are also required to have the same sense and soul since each puppeteer has a duty to play the puppet. The type of puppet is not as usual. It is in the form of ogoh-ogoh (human papier mâché demon) or as a giant puppet.

The puppeteers also danced aside from playing the wayang or puppet. With a stage outfit, the skilled puppeteers showed off their expression into the motion and acting medium. By all means, it became an innovative performance because it was not only presented the dance of the puppets but also collaborated with the original dancers. Both arts were presented in a unique staging. The Wayang Akara show was presented at the celebration of the 226th anniversary of Denpasar City in the Ardha Candra Amphitheater of Denpasar Art Center.

This kind of puppet show is relatively new whose story was taken from the Arjuna Wiwaha or Marriage of Arjuna. The manuscript was written by IB Anom Ranuara by involving experienced theater performers. The story told about the journey of Arjuna to Mount Indrakila to obtain the grace of Lord Shiva. In order to obtain the grace, Arjuna should be able to pass through various obstacles deliberately made by Lord Indra.

As a knight, Arjuna should meditate so he could get the grace of Lord Shiva. However, he had to deal with a giant figure named Niwatakwaca having a great power. His determination was also tempted by beautiful angel. Based on the seriousness, courage and sincerity, Arjuna was finally able to get through all the obstacles.

To play the puppet figure by three players was certainly not easy because it was required a harmonious and balanced movement other than inspiration of the wayang figure played. “Hopefully, the presence of Wayang Akara is able to give a new color for the world of the performing arts in Bali because it is offering an innovative puppet,” said Ranuara.
