(5/24/2013)

The 35th Bali Arts Festival will take place June 15 – July 13, 2013.

More than 340 national and international performance groups will take to the stages of the Bali Arts Center in downtown Denpasar.

The Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports that foreign performing groups from the U.S.A., India, Korea and several European nations are scheduled to appear in presentations  that will also include pioneering new collaborative efforts between Balinese and foreign artists.

The month-long festival will open with a traditional parade at which the Indonesian President traditional presides. After the parade on June 15, a formal grand opening ceremony will be held that same evening at Artha Candra Open Stage.

The 2013 Bali Arts Festival has adopted the theme of “Taksu” (inspiration or charisma) focusing on traditional art forms.

Ancient forms of classical Balinese dance will be resurrected during this year’s festival that will also feature culinary exhibitions, competitions, fashion shows, floral shows and displays of traditional handicrafts.

Local vendors will be selling traditional Balinese food including chicken and duck betutu, babu guling and lawar.

Commenting on the festival, the Bali chairman of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali), Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardana Sukawati (Cok Ace), bemoaned the failure of the Bali Arts Festival to become a fixture on the Island’s list of tourist activities. Characterized by poor promotion and the lack of even a formal website listing performance times and venues, attendance at shows by visiting tourists remain minimal.

Cok Ace who heads the Bali Tourism Promotion Board (BPP) said the festival would become part of the Board’s promotional program in 2013.

Show on Balidiscovery.com is the chairman of the PHRI-Bali, Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardana Sukawati.
