Ener-Chi a survival story by maRia Bodmann
This contemporary shadow play, created for the prestigious 2010
The story depicts by the health care system's intense rigamarole:
Ener-Chi is a dramatic departure from maRia's traditional Balinese
The production retains essential elements of the ancient art of Wayang Kulit, for example: a stretched linen screen, the intricate stylized carving of newly designed shadow figures, live musical accompaniment provided by Cliff DeArment, and a warm, festive context. The environment is blessed and enhanced with appropriate decorations, incense, flowers, fruit, and sweets.
Ener-Chi can be performed in a variety of venues, both indoor and out, and can be presented in a traditional Western proscenium setting or in the round, in which case, the audience can be encouraged to view both sides of the screen and enjoy the play from different angles.
