"Budi and the Hornbill"
translated by Alice M. Terada, adaptation by Lynn Kremer
Streaming Available until June 30 View "Budi and the Hornbill"
In this fantasy, inspired by a Sumatran folk tale, Budi, an honest but down-on-his-luck fisherman, learns about loyalty, honesty and how to recognize one's strengths and weaknesses. "Budi and the Hornbill" incorporates large-scale puppets to portray buffalo, horses, tigers, snakes, and the hornbill of the title. Near extinction in some places in the world, hornbills are thought to have sacred powers in Indonesia and are often portrayed in dances and tales as heroes who are close to godlike. Audiences of all ages will delight in this inventive dance/theatre work. A Department of Theatre production directed by Lynn Kremer.
