Tonight's presentation will explore dancing in the royal courts and remote highland villages of Java. What are the different layers of meaning behind these dances? And how do Javanese people explain what is going on? Illustrated with film clips and photographs the presentation will draw upon over 30 years of research into Javanese ceremonial and ritual dance, human movement and expression.
