Bali Mask Festival Planned

International Mask Festival Planned for East Bali in November or December this year.

(8/23/2001) Internationally renowned Balinese painter and museum founder, Drs. Nyoman Gunarsa, has announced plans to hold an International Mask Festival at a date yet-to-be-announced in November or December, 2001.

According to Mr. Gunarsa, a number of countries have expressed interest in participating in the event, including Argentina, Belgium, Italy, and Japan. The event will be divided into three parts: the staging of various masked dances; an exhibition of fine masks from around the world; and a seminar discussing the development of mask artistry.

The Festival will be headquartered at the Museum Seni Lukis Klasik Bali, a museum established by Mr. Gunarsa near Klungkung in East Bali.

The Island of Bali has a strong connection with topeng, with the production and use of masks playing an important role in many Balinese dance dramas.
