Reviewed January 17, 2013

The show is bright and colourful, and very attractively presented. It's a nice way to see some of the variety of Indonesian dances and costumes. Recommended.

“Great job, Devdan!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

As a local, i'm impressed with the professionalism displayed by the Devdan team. A welcomed and very much appreciated improvement from the typicality of Indonesian people. You certainly set example, that if you try and push yourself hard enough, Indonesian also can do something better than just the "average" in things.
Overall, the show was very enjoyable. A little bit boring for my 4 years old, maybe because of the 90minutes duration is a little bit too long for her tired little body (been a long day for her). Costumes great, concept great, the dancers marvellous, theatre also quite clean. I would recommend the show to friends visiting Bali, for sure.
Few dislikes: air-con too cold, audio a tad too loud, ticket price a tad too expensive.

“The Best Performance in Indonesia”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I am from Jakarta and I have been traveling alot to overseas watching many performances. Honestly, I didn't expect to watch such a great performance as usually Indonesian dancer are slow and lack of energy. But it was a great surprise as the show was spectacular. The effect was great as I've never seen such effect performed in Indonesia by local people. It was also a surprise that the show started at 7 pm sharp. I am proud with Devdan show.

The only feedback I can give is about the story. I kind a lost in the middle of the story after the monkey performance. I don't know which culture wants to be told. I got back into the track when the Borneo ladies dance.

Bravo devdan show!

Dear v_lee_a,

Greetings from Nusa Dua! Thank you for spending time watching our show, and subsequently posting this valuable feedback. The whole team at Bali Nusa Dua Theatre is committed to professionalism as a way to appreciate our valued audience like you. In response to your comment regarding our monkey scene, I could offer some explanation that this particular part is one of our interval scenes designed to build interaction with the audience, especially young ones. Anyhow, I truly appreciate your honest review and hope that we can host you and your family again in the future.

Cheers,
The Management

“Alot of money for a panto quality performance”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Liked : was something to do in the evening, some of the dancing was nice and it gave an insight into Bali

Disliked: the price for the show, could have got a front row to broadway or the west end for the same price, I realise were on holiday but it was no different to a hotels entertainment program.

“unexpected pleasure”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

We're locals living overseas - stayed 5 days in Nusa Dua for Christmas break to unwind with no prearranged program. Strolled down the area, by chance we decided to check out the show. In fact, that was probably the best local shows we've ever witnessed. As Indonesians, we could not be prouder of our roots - richness of cultural diversity being staged in enchanting performance with a dash of humourous act. Areas to improve: 1. Introduction part: English translation could have been prioritized, sound system was hardly audible (group of tourist scene); 2. Information on LCD: not informative enough. Other than that, entire show was well beyond our expecation, bravo!!

Dear IngeKusuma,

Greetings from Devdan Show team! Thank you for your testimonial! I am pleased to learn that you enjoyed the whole performance that, besides showing the beauty of Indonesia, is also aimed at reminding young generations of their cultural roots. Your feedback is much appreciated. In addition to the information on LCD's. we are now in the process of producing brochures that provide images and more detailed description of each scene. By this, we hope our audience will have access to more information about the Indonesia's heritages that are represented in the show.

Wishing you a happy holiday season!

Kind regards.
