Description

The 2018 International Linguapax Award -- the world's top award for language revitalization projects -- will be presented to the people of Bali for the innovative free online Balinese-English-Indonesian Wiki dictionary and virtual library ("BASAbali Wiki"). The Wiki acts as a public cultural resource while engaging scholars and community members within and outside of Bali in strengthening the Balinese language alongside national and international tongues while making a statement about the importance of Balinese cultural in the modern digital world.

Sanggar Kumarasari , ARMA's Children's Gamelan and Dance Group, will kick off the evening followed by Grup Gedebong Goyang, a comedy group of Balinese-speaking Western women that invite the audience to laugh at and with them as they shed light on cultural and linguistic stereotypes, will introduce the International Linguapax Award along with some of the people behind the BASAbali Wiki.

This presentation will be followed by a performance of Wayang Listrik (Electric Shadows) by one of Bali’s most accomplished puppet masters, I Made Sidia. Wayang Listrik, also known as Wayang Skateboard because the puppeteers move their puppets around faster using skateboards than traditional puppeteers were able to do, is a fusion between a traditional wayang (shadow puppet) performance and modern technology, again underscoring the viability of local Balinese traditions in the age of technology.

One ticket per person is required. Tickets will also be sold at the door, space permitting.
