Abstract

Attention is paid to the issue of heritage, questioning to which extent wayang kulit practices are participating to the intangible cultural heritage discourse and to which extent wayang recognition as a world ICH is having impact on it. However, the intention of this research is to know wayang kulit in a broader context, how wayang kulit is and is alive – in between continuous forces – at the contemporary on going time in the Special Region of Yogyakarta. Along the utopian path in which I collocate myself – to move with/through/in wayang, in between making and performing – it is to disclose how in live experiences, multidimensional relations between puppets, people, stories and places make wayang kulit alive, shaping wayang polysemy and multiontology.
