Journal of Dusk continues Jumaadi’s interest in the history of migration and exchange between Australia and Indonesia during the twentieth century through a creative reinterpretation of the story of the construction of Australia’s first gamelan, an Indonesian percussion instrument. Beginning with depictions of agrarian life from Indonesia, Journal of Dusk presents a montage of imagery from Australia and Indonesia including animals and plants, through to more abstract scenes of landscapes and places.

In addition to the three performances, Jumaadi will be leading a workshop for younger audiences (recommended age 7-12)*. Children will join Jumaadi in the making of shadow puppets, story writing and the actual performance of shadow puppetry. They will leave with a shadow puppet of their own creation.
