Haiku - 34th Bali Arts Festival


Bali Arts Festival
gods and humans
fuse in spirit

Bali Arts Festival
on the sunset beach
chants of kecak dancers

Bali Arts Festival
between the fiery sunset
and moonlight - kecak chants

Bali Arts Festival
in full splendour
the ramayana

Bali Arts Festival
gods, humans blast
away in colours and dances

Bali Arts Festival
playing with us
gods and demons

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Each year, the Bali Arts Festival, beside the fed classical dances of the island, such as the legong, gambuh, kecak, barong, baris, mask dances and the like, is based on the theme around which new 'dance choreography' is produced and old village dances and activities revived. Over the years, the whole range of classical Balinese stories - Ramayana, Mahabharata, Sutasoma, Panji - have thus been turned into 'colossal' Sendratari Ballets.
