Presented by Gamelan Sekar Jaya and ShadowLight Productions in association with the Presidio Theatre, Drupadi is a woman-centered retelling of the Mahabharata’s central arc, as presented in cinematic shadow in celebration of Women’s History Month. Don’t miss this unique collaborative performance featuring acclaimed storyteller Brenda Wong Aoki, shadow master Larry Reed, choreography by Emiko Saraswati Susilo, and live gamelan music by I Dewa Putu Berata.

This unique Women’s History Month collaborative performance explores themes that traverse continents and centuries: from India to Bali; ancient history to the twenty-first century. Drupadi tells her own story, and we see the men’s world of the epic through the eyes of a powerful woman, who takes all five Pandawa brothers as her husbands and equals, transcends unspeakable humiliation at the hands of the Kurawas, and bears witness to the devastation of cataclysmic war.

A company of Gamelan Sekar Jaya dancers, led by Guest Dance Director I Made Suteja, and a complement of ShadowLight artists will bring the magically unwinding story of the Mahabharata to life on a massive shadow screen. The performance features live music for the Balinese metallophone gamelan semar pegulingan ensemble, composed by Guest Music Director I Dewa Putu Berata.

  • Narrated by Brenda Wong Aoki and Larry Reed
  • Choreography by Emiko Saraswati Susilo

  • With Guest Dance Director I Made Suteja

This project is made possible in part by a grant from The Creative Work Fund, a program of the Walter and Elise Haas Fund that also is supported by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
