Performances generally start around 20:30 or 20:45 and end around 04:00. You may arrive and leave any time you like, and taking photos is allowed. Often, the crowds are in the thousands so it is a good idea to arrive early and perhaps have a local guide. Any video recording should be proceded by permission from Ki Purbo Asmoro.

Ki Purbo Asmoro only makes public his performance schedule for the upcoming month. As per tradition in Java, almost all performances are free and open to the public. On the rare occasion that a performance is ticketed or closed, this will be noted. Often the exact address, story information, or recording/broadcasting/live-streaming details are not clear until the last minute.
Only the rare performance includes simultaneous English translation, unless requested by a group of interested viewers in which case it can be provided. If you are looking for the most up-to-date information, keep checking this page as changes and updates will appear. You can also check one of the Facebook pages organized by Ki Purbo Asmoro's various fan groups:
