Item description for Phenomenology of a Puppet Theatre: Contemplations on the Art of Javanese Wayang Kulit (Verhandelingen) by Jan Mrazek...
This study of wayang focuses on the power of the theatrical medium, the actuality of the performance as a physical, emotional, and social experience and event, and the sensations and feelings involved in an all-night performance. A single puppeteer moves the delicate puppets in dance-like patterns integrated with continuous music, which he also directs; he speaks the voices of all characters; and he represents beings and a mythological world that reflect the human world, including the specific occasion and the people present.
