This week we are learning shadow puppets and plays. Shadow puppets and shadow plays are popular in many places across the world. They were probably invented in China or India around 2000 years ago.
We are going to look at Indonesian Wayang Kulit shadow plays. These were originally used to tell traditional Hindu stories, such as the Rama and Sita story which I have uploaded a script for below.
Have a look at the links, PowerPoint and videos below to find out more about Wayang Kulit and shadow plays. I have also uploaded a picture of Indonesia on a map so you can see where it is.
Can you make up a shadow play of your own? Or use the Rama and Sita script below, or retell 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.
