Nusa Dua area business and The Bali Tourism Development Corporation (BTDC) in cooperation with the provincial office of the Department of Culture and Tourism will join forces to present the 6th annual
Nusa Dua Festival August 23 - 29, 2002.
One of Bali's largest cultural celebrations, The Nusa Dua Festival 2002 is a community celebration involving all of the Nusa Dua area's business and the staffs of the hotels located within the complex.
This year's festival has adopted the theme of Segera Lelanguag or an ocean journey as depicted in the Hindu epic Mahabrata. That episode, relating how holy water imparted eternal life on the gods, was selected to emphasize the resilience and sustainability of Bali's artistic and cultural traditions.
Festival opens on August 23
will officially open on August 23rd with a colossal Peed Agung parade involving over 1,000 people in traditional Balinese dress and a mass gamelan orchestra.
During the following week a wide range of activities will be staged at a number of performance areas throughout the Nusa Dua Complex. Performances of drama, dance, and music will be presented as well as exhibitions of the rich range of visual arts of the island. As in past years, the festival will be the showcase for new and exciting cultural performances commissioned by local communities from across the island especially for the event.
