I Wayan Dibia: bringing Balinese traditions into performance study at the VCA
Professor I Wayan Dibia is a Senior Honorary Fellow in the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music and a master teacher from Bali. Each Summer, via the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music Global Atelier Program, students in the BFA (Acting) spend a week in Bali with Dibia, Senior Lecturer in Acting Budi Miller and local colleagues working on their craft, while learning about Balinese performance techniques. Dibia then comes to VCA and works with students from across the BFA (Acting) and BFA (Theatre) degrees, teaching the Balinese Hindu dance and music drama technique, Kecak. This innovative addition to the undergraduate program has a lasting impact on the students throughout their studies. By Stephanie Juleff
