Bring the entire family to experience Shadow Ballads —a unique event that brings together leading performers of Appalachian and Asian music and theater to relate shared experiences of everyday life from opposite ends of the world.
Master artists from Virginia and Indonesia will combine “crankies,” a form of American folk theater depicting ballads on paper and cloth rolls, with “wayang kulit,” a traditional form of Asian shadow puppetry. Shadow Ballads will be accompanied by a unique combination of American old-time music and the Indonesian kroncong string-band.
Members of the audience will be invited on stage to try the crankies and shadow puppets after this family-friendly performance.
