Rumput @ Gallery5 w/ All the Saints Theater Company

November 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Raden Panji detailContinuing our fall tour featuring  newly commissioned artworks from central Java: wayang beber (scrolling panorama) by Dani Iswardana and musical compositions by Rumput’s sometime guest artistic director and master teacher Danis Sugiyanto.

The darkness seeks the light of the sun as All the Saints Theater Company explores versions of hell while holding space for our childhood selves with love, humor, color, and puppets. For all ages, made with adults in mind. All the Saints is best known for founding the annual Halloween Parade through Oregon Hill. They create puppets for shows, streets, protests, and parades. They believe street puppets and story telling are mighty tools in the movements for social, racial, and environmental justice. Their larger-than-life puppets are blessed by the papermache gods and the gods of trash, cardboard, and bamboo.

Java and the rest of Indonesia are suffering record high deaths from COVID-19. Performers are barred from their livelihood, many are sick, and all are grieving. Proceeds from this show will benefit Javanese artists.

$10 suggested donation
