A Future for Bali Traditions in a Contemporary World
By Peter J. Wilson and Made Sidia 


Two legendary men of the theatre, Australian Peter J. Wilson and Balinese Made Sidia, have collaborated in creating modern masterpieces that include the longest running stage show in the Island’s history at the Bali Agung Theatre at the Bali Safari & Marine Park and the two recently premiered Balinese Living Arts Shows in Ubud. 
 
While music, dance and the fine arts are a central feature of Balinese society, how is it evolving and adapting amidst the din and competition of the “entertainment on demand” era? How do theatre, art and social comment through the arts have a place within arts that are steeped in a wonderful tradition?
 
Made Sidia and Peter Wilson have worked together over the past 20 years creating innovative ways of communicating Balinese culture based on centuries old traditions, making the Island’s culture accessible to a new generation of both Indonesian and international audiences.
 
Not to be missed! Two world-class storytellers and showmen at the height of their artistic powers.

Watching Bali: readings from The Painted Alphabet and Other Works
By Diana Darling - Author
 
Diana Darling is an American-born writer and editor who has lived in Bali since 1980. She spent the 1970s in Carrara (Italy) and Paris, where she worked as a sculptor. She lives in Ubud in the family compound of her husband, Anak Agung Alit Ardi, to whom she has been married since 1992, the year of the publication of her first book, The Painted Alphabet (Houghton Mifflin), a novel based on a Balinese tale. The New Yorker called it "a little gem of a novel." Since then, she has written for numerous books and periodicals on Balinese culture and society. From 2002 to 2004 she was editor-in-chief of the magazine Latitudes. She is currently a freelance writer and editor. Diana will share excerpts from her writings that reflect a deep understanding of Balinese culture and mysticism.

“Bali 1964 to 2009: The Shadows that Dance in and out of my Memory.”
By Jan Mantjika – Auhtor and 50+ Year Resident of Bali
 
A young New Zealander when she first arrived in Bali with her Balinese Columbo Plan husband and an infant daughter in 1964, Mantjika was forced to comprehend her way through a confusing Babylon of new languages; hungrily live from hand to mouth in a world of never-ending shortages; cheerfully accept demands to fulfill the ritual and cultural demands of being a dutiful Balinese wife; and negotiate daily life in a country experiencing a whirlpool of nationalistic frenzy where foreigners were often viewed with fear and loathing.
 
Arriving in Bali during the “years of living dangerously,” Jan raised her young family from within the confines of a Balinese compound while tumultuous events of precipitated by the “failed” coup of 1965 unfolded around her. Many historians claim that the bloodletting and social upheaval that followed the "night of the generals" reached its frenzied peak in Bali 1965-1966 as Jan protectively clung to her children as angry crowds marched down Bali's streets. Food and daily essentials, such as soap, were hard to come by as neighbors whispered over backyard walls about acquaintances who had suddenly disappeared and local rivers and beaches strewn with the bodies of the newly massacred.
 
Bali Banjar Culture Club
 
Held on the second Sunday of every month, the Bale Banjar Culture Club is a pioneering community outreach by the Ayodya Resort Bali to support and encourage a wider understanding of Balinese culture and history.
