Wayang Bocor performance is contemporary shadow puppet which is created by contemporary visual artist Eko Nugroho. It has presented since 2008. This performance is inspired by traditional shadow puppet that is believed as Java culture. Wayang (Puppet) comes from the word of wewayangan that has meaning as shadow. Thus, in this puppet performance presents shadow behind the white screen (kelir) with special headlights called blencong in earlier times. And usually, this performance also presents the story adaptation of Ramayana & Mahabharata. However in the era of Majapahit, it presents also the Panji story (ancestor of Majapahit).
This staging picked up the story on television news that permeated the unconscious.
About media that creates terror fears in the streets, in homes, in the villages, in the cities. About fading fairy-before-tiduryang replaced by the hypnotic glow of a display box called television.
