“Brilliant…stunning…superbly coordinated… compelling.” —L.A. Times


Inspired by Bali’s timeless cycles of ceremony and ritual, Odalan Bali illustrates through music and movement the creative life force of the Balinese Temple Festival. From the clamor of villagers working at dawn to the calm of prayer and worship, from the meditative resonance of voice and flutes to the virtuosic dances for which Bali is famous, this evening-length work traces the life of a ceremony from the awakening of the ritual site, to purification, and finally to spiritual union. Odalan Bali speaks to the

enduring strength of Balinese culture.
