Abstract: Creating & Performing Pinang & Ayu: A Love Story A Lesbian Shadow-Puppet Performance: I fell in love with wayang kulit (Indonesian shadow-puppet theater) in Jan Mrázek’s art history class in 2003. This love led to my own performance, 6 years later, as a graduate student at the University of Oregon. On May 7th, 2009 I performed Pinang and Ayu: A Love Story, for my Folklore MA. The performance was largely collaborative, as I was working with Gamelan Sari Pandhawa of Eugene, OR, and I owe director Qehn considerable thanks for his guidance. The creative and learning processes, and of course the performance itself, were unforgettable experiences -- The Bailout Biennial (January 15 until April 15, 2009): How can and do we respond to the economic, political, and social world around us as artists at a time of heightened frenzy and pending doom? Can art shed some light on the current situation or poke some holes in the dull screen of it all?
