Devdan is a spectacular stage performance held four nights a week at the Nusa Dua Theater, which opened in BTDC Nusa Dua in 2011. The air-conditioned theater boasts state-of-the-art facilities including the latest lighting and stage designs, and can seat up to 700 people.
Since it's opening, the theater has delighted audiences with the highly entertaining Devdan show, a high-energy performance that takes you on a magical journey through the various cultures of Indonesia.
The word Devdan comes from Sanskrit "Deva" and "Dhana", meaning "God's Grace".
The story begins with a tour group (and extremely funny guide) on a tour in the jungle. Two young children become bored with the tour and decide to climb to the top of a mountain where they discover a treasure chest filled with various items.
These items represent five islands of Indonesia, namely Bali, Java, Sumatra, Borneo and Papua. Every time a new item is taken out of the chest, that island's culture is depicted through its traditional song and dance.
Favorite performances include the Saman Dance and Rain Dance of Sumatra, and the Duo Aerial Strap of Borneo.
The 90-minute show takes the audience on a fantastic journey, starting in Bali and going on to Sumatra, Java, Borneo and Papua. The contemporary show combines the essence of traditional dance as well as modern dance, including acrobatics, aerial ballet and fire dancing.
Devdan runs four times a week, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, from 19:00 until 20:30.
Tickets can be booked from travel agencies, or directly through the official Devdan website (http://www.devdanshow.com/). Four types of seating are available, with prices varying depending on the seat location.

As the show ends at around 20:30, most people will be feeling a little hungry for a bite to eat.
