So this was the attempt at exposing the kids to some Indonesian Culture.

We were led here at our Driver's recommendation, which we took at face value. The kids got an earful of exposure to a cultural dance and we were provided with an explanation of the dance so we could follow.

If I'm honest though, at 5 acts, hour in total, it was too long and even the best costumes and interest weren't enough to keep my interest levels from dropping. Definitely way too long for the kids whose attention span disappeared after the first act, let along the next four.

That all said, I can see the potential value and interest to some in a very commercial and touristy production type of way.

PS. No animals were harmed in the making of this production.

This dance show was well worth going to, so full of energy and a credit to all the characters. We loved the monkey!! whoever played that part, really has monkey antics down perfectly. Musicians were also good. Would recommend this show to everyone

The stories are all self explanatory with good ancient way of depicting and telling the stories through dance and fine arts. The costumes and performances are astounding. The place is very old fashioned and takes you a bit 50 years back. Watch once and it will be there in your memories for whole of the life time

Went in a sceptic and came out having a thougherly enjoyable experience.
A simple but also complex story line with great costumes and music.
A must.
