A Wayang Orang dancer poses as he waits backstage before their performance during a show at the Bharata Theatre in Jakarta. Involving more than 100 people in roles such as dancers and musicians, the group is one of three troupes in Indonesia that perform every Saturday night.

Wayang Orang is heavily influenced by Hinduism, which can be traced as far back as the ninth century in Indonesia.
