Gamelan Sekar Jaya & Pusaka Sunda: Bayangan Jiwa
Cowell Theater — Jun 2nd
Gamelan Sekar Jaya (GSJ), Pusaka Sunda, Fort Mason Center, and World Arts West present The Opening Performance of The San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival 2012, featuring new and traditional works for Balinese gamelan semarandana, angklung, gendér & dance, and Sundanese gamelan degung and dance, including a collaborative piece by Burhan Sukarma and I Dewa Putu Berata, and Sekar Jaya's World Premiere of Bayangan Jiwa “The Spirit’s Image,” created and led by I Dewa Putu Berata and Emiko Saraswati Susilo, and performed by thirty-five of GSJ's musicians and dancers.
Bayangan Jiwa draws upon the rich melodic possibilities of the Semarandana instruments, an ensemble composed of metallaphones, gongs, and flutes with seven pitches instead of the more common four- or five-toned ensembles ubiquitous in Bali. New choreography by Emiko Saraswati Susilo features innovative movement specifically created to explore dance via shadow-lighting technology. Bayangan Jiwa means both "the spirit's image" and "the imagination of the spirit."
