DEVDAN Show – Indonesia’s Leading Tourism Show 2014/15
You know when you travel to Phuket, it is a must to catch the FantaSea show? It’s the same when you are in Bali, it is a must to go for the Devdan Show. Winner of Indonesia Leading Tourism Show – ITTA 2014/15, the Devdan show is a mind-blowing overview of sacred Bali, exotic Papua, mystical Kalimantan and many more.
The word DEVDAN comes from Sanskrit ‘Deva’ and ‘Dhana’, meaning “God’s Grace”. The Indonesia’s treasures are God’s gifts for Indonesian people and it is shared in this 90 minutes dynamic show of traditional dances and acrobatic performances.
Nusa Dua Theatre
Jl. Nusa Dua, Benoa, Kuta Sel., Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
Devdan performs 4 days a week – Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays only. We caught the Wednesday show.
Tickets price ranged from IDR 260,000 (RM81) up to IDR 780,000 (RM245).
The ticket price is inclusive of free shuttle service to Hotel (Area: Nusa Dua, Tanjung Benoa, Jimbaran, Kuta, Sanur, Seminyak)
It is recommended to be at the venue by 7pm or before, as the gate will be open at 7.15 and the show starts at 7.30pm. While waiting for the show to start, we explored around the theatre to admire the mini exhibition.

Testimonials from prominent figures around the world who have attended the Devdan show.
At 7.30pm sharp, the show begins. No flash photography is allowed inside the theatre. Unlike FantaSea Phuket, we do not need to surrender our camera and phones before entering the theatre. All we need to do is be discreet and not take any flash photography. Video recording is prohibited except during the finale.
Each dance is accompanied by the name and explanation on the screens below the stage to help us understand it better. It was an eye-opening journey for us to learn the various dances and history behind it.
East meets West was an interesting segment where hip hop dance bands together with the Javanese dancers. This presents the present-day reality in which tradition and pop culture live side by side.
The show is also interactive with confetti shooting down on audience as well as dancers getting audience to dance along.

I was so engrossed in the performances that 90 minutes passed by really quickly without me realizing it. It is definitely a 90 minutes worth spent in Bali.
