About the Instructor

Panji Wilimantara

Panji Wilimantara is a scholar and active practitioner of Balinese arts and religion. He discovered his love of puppetry at a young age when he became seriously ill, and was cured by the spiritual power of his family's puppets. Neither of Wilimantara's parents had carried on the puppetry tradition, and so this experience compelled Wilimantara to travel to Denpasar, Bali to study at one of the nation's leading art conservatories, and then to reinvigorate the wayang tradition in his home village. Since this time, he has debuted contemporary works at the Bali Arts Festival, and participated in ceremonial performances at the islands 'mother temple' of Basakih.
