(4/9/2006)

Some of Bali's most accomplished traditional dancers will soon be visiting The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts to present Adhipusengara - a classical Arja Balinese dance opera, loosely based on Sophocles' Oedipus Rex.

Part of a tour of New England (USA), the performance will feature a Balinese dance troupe, including I Wayan Dibia, Ni Made Wiratini, Ni Nyoman Manik Suryani, I Nengah Susila, Ni Made Pujawati, I Nyoman Saptanyana, and Ida Ayu Ari Candrawati.

Dr. I Wayan Dibia is currently engaged as a visiting fellow in Balinese arts at the College of The Holy Cross – one of America's most distinguished undergraduate institution and the oldest Catholic college in New England.

The April 19, 2006 performance will commence at 8 p.m. in the Brooks Music Hall at the Worcester campus. Attendance is free and open to the general public. Because this is a rare performance of such magnitude at the College, local coordinators are recommending those planning to attend the performance arrive early.

Arja - Balinese dance opera, is at once one of Bali's oldest theatrical forms while, at the same time, managing to remain topical in its willingness to incorporate issues of contemporary interest in its repertoire. According to Dr. Dibia, who is also a leading force and a Professor at Bali's prestigious School of the Performing Arts (ISI), Adhipusengara is about "the consequences of not believing in the power of God."

Dibia is one of the world's most distinguished performers, composers, and choreographers of Balinese music and dance. With a Ph.D from UCLA, he is the author of numerous books and articles on Balinese dance and music. A living cultural icon on the Island of Bali, Dr. Dibia has performed extensively throughout Australia, Europe and the United States.

For more information about the concert, contact Joe Mader (USA) at ++1-508-793-3490.
