About the Grant

$35,000 for three collaborative works by composers I Made Arnawa and Wayne Vitale, and dancers/choreographers/ puppeteers I Made Sija and Larry Reed. Tabuh Dua Ombak Ing Segara (MAP 1994), a 20-minute piece for Gamelan Gong Kebyar by Arnawa and Vitale. Music for Genrincing Wesi, a solo dance work accompanied by Gamelan Gong Kebyar, was also composed by Arnawa and Vitale in the spring of 1995, while I Made Sidia choreographed the dance and taught it to Gamelan Sekar Jaya and dancer Emiko Susilo. Both companies joined for intensive rehearsals and premiered the work before an audience of 3,000 at the Bali Arts Festival, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Indonesia’s independence. Sidha Karya: A New Balinese Shadow Play was the largest scale of the three productions, combining shadow puppets and masked dance created collaboratively by Reed and Sija, with music composed by I Dewa Putu Berata for a full gamelan orchestra.
