Enjoy a performance by Indonesian-Australian artist Jumaadi which draws on a form of traditional Indonesian theatre called wayang kulit, weaving poetic narratives based on historical connections between Australia and South-East Asia. In this new work, Jumaadi tells the story of a deaf musician who teaches the art of shadow play to his blind son.
This performance is part of the exhibition Telling Tales which explores the varied approaches taken by leading Australian and international artists to narrative form. An expansive installation of Jumaadi’s works can be found in the MCA Level 3 Galleries as part of Telling Tales from 2 June-9 October 2016.
