Photo Friday: Srikandi Mustakaweni

The cultural center in Solo recently hosted a festival of female dhalang–women puppeteers. It was very cool to watch, especially because it was fascinating hearing them do the voices for the different characters. Hopefully I’ll be able to upload a video of that eventually, but for now here’s a photo of a rarity: a scene in wayang that maybe actually passes the Bechdel test. Count ’em, that’s three girl characters on screen all at once!
