Indonesian Gamelan performance – THE FIRST SMILE

Sun 13 March, 2pm, Bottle Creek Gallery

The First Smile is a set of gamelan instruments and accompanying set of wayang kulit puppets, from Cirebon, West Java, which were brought to New Zealand in 1974 by Allan Thomas. This is your last chance to hear an amazing musical performance in our Bottle Creek Gallery space, and to farewell the shadow puppets before the exhibition closes.
