Mahakarya at Borobudur

The Aksobya open air theatre of Borobudur hosts a very special Javanese dance event once each year in June.

The Mahakarya is the story behind the conception of the temple through to
the construction, interweaving the stories of the Saliendra dynasty and local
life of the 8th Century.

This is a contemporary piece, the result of a collaboration between local communities, dancers from Solo’s Art School and historians.
