Symposium | Panji stories in manuscripts and performance

September 21 @ 10:00 - 17:00

Event Navigation

Panji stories are among the most popular works of Indonesian literature, art and theatre. To celebrate the recent Unesco-recognition of this important genre, the Leiden University Library and KITLV will hold a one-day symposium in Leiden on 21 September 2018 exploring Panji stories in manuscripts, paintings and dramatic performance.

Panji-specialists from the Netherlands and abroad will introduce the public to Prince Panji, the wandering hero of Indonesian adventure stories. They will bring Panji to life with the use of traditional manuscripts, paintings and a demonstration with dance masks.

Wayang performance
The Javanese puppeteer Agus Bimo Prayitno and his musicians will finish the day with a unique and innovative shadow puppet theatre (wayang kulit) performance on Prince Panji. In this performance Panji features as a metaphor for Javanese farmers. They are encouraged to ensure the availability of water for their plots and households by taking care of their natural environment. The performance will take place in the Lipsius building, room 0.19, 15.30-16.30 hrs.
