Our bond with the sea is explored in this enchanting work of shadow theatre and music. Hundreds of intricate cut-outs trip the light fantastic in a playful piece inspired by the vessels that have sailed between the Indonesian archipelago and Australia. 

Perahu-Perahu, which means “boats” in Indonesian, is a collaboration between Indonesian-Australian artists Jumaadi and Michael Toisuta. 

“Though themes of loss, displacement and struggle underpin Jumaadi's art, it is infused with beauty, humour, breathtakingly crafted detail and the power of bringing these stories into the light for people to share.” - The Sydney Morning Herald
