Çudamani Festival 2018
August 2, 3 & 4
Çudamani is one of Bali’s most respected performing arts schools and companies, and is committed to both the reconstruction of classic repertoire as well as supporting innovative work by young artists.
The Çudamani Festival 2018 is the company’s third festival and will feature three distinct evenings of performances.
Çudamani’s incredible twenty year reputation was built an amazing ensemble of artists. Highlighting some of Bali’s classic and classy repertoire, this evening will present gorgeous, powerful and treasured masterpieces. Çudamani’s internationally renowned ensemble has selected some of Bali’s most sublimely beautiful music and dance pieces for this evening. This is a rare opportunity to see a carefully curated music and dance works by Master artists Ibu Arini, Pak Nyoman Cerita, Pak Dewa Berata, Pak Ketut Wirtawan, and Dedo Mahardika. Çudamani’s virtuosic performing ensemble will present some of Bali’s most haunting repertoire. These classic works are the foundation for Çudamani commitment to restoring works of enduring beauty in their full glory.
This is a RARE opportunity to see the group in a public performance and to get a glimpse of why Çudamani is so unique. The group does not do regular tourist shows (so this is IT for 2017). A breath-taking finale for Çudamani’s festival, an evening packed with Bali’s most dramatic pieces performed by some of the island’s most sought after performers. Çudamani is known for its highly innovative work and this evening will be an opportunity to see the world premiere of its newest creative instrumental piece. In addition, rarely performed pieces such as Legong Pengleb, Kebyar Duduk and Oleg in Peliatan style, Teruna Gandrung, and Çudamani’s signature performances of Genjek/Kecak and Kebyar Perak are unforgettable. A truly rare opportunity to see Çudamani’s internationally renowned performers in action.
These guys are, actually, on fire, and this incredible program that will have a range of pieces from contemporary, to classic Gambuh dance, from enthralling instrumental and ethereally beautiful dance works to the recently re-constructed masterpiece, Pudak Sinunggal, that is just this year emerging from the brink of being lost. It’s an incredible program for even the most seasoned gamelan aficionados and for those new to Balinese arts, it’s hard to think of a better way to see these amazing arts.
