Balinese dance festival of indonesia

  1. 1. BALINESE DANCE FESTIVAL OF INDONESIA
  2. 2. Balinese dance festival of Indonesia  Balinese dances are a very ancient dance tradition that is a part of the religious and artistic expression among the Balinese people  In Hinduism, dance is an accompaniment to the perpetual dissolving and reforming of the world. The creative and reproductive balance is often personified as Shiva’s wife, Durga, sometimes is called Uma, Parvati, or Kali. This has significance in Balinese Hinduism, since the common figure of Rangda is similar in many ways to Durga.
  3. 3. Variations  In Bali there are various categories of dance, including epic performances such as the universal Mahabharata and Ramayana. Certain ceremonies at village temples feature a special performance of a dance drama, a battle between the mythical characters Rangda, the witch representing evil and Barong, the lion or dragon, representing good.  Among the dance traditions in Bali, these terms deserve special mention: Barong, the lion: Legong, a refined dance form characterized by intricate finger movements, complicated footwork, and expressive gestures and facial expressions; and Kecak, a form of Balinese dance and music drama, it originated in the 1930’s in Bali performed primarily by men.
  4. 4. Training of Bali Dance  Bali dancers learn the craft from their mothers as soon as they are born. In the womb, they are played the Balinese music and are taught to dance with their hands before they can walk. Official training as a Bali dancer starts as young as seven. In Balinese dance the movement is closely associated with the rhythms produced by gamelan, a musical ensemble specific to Java and Bali.
  5. 5. Movements  Multiple levels of articulations in the face, eyes, hands, arms, hips, and feet are coordinated to reflect layers of percussive sounds. The number of codified hand positions and gestures, the mudras, is higher in India than in Java and Bali. Hand positions and positions are nonetheless as important in Javanese and Balinese dance as in India. Whether in India, Indonesia, or Cambodia, hands are typically ornamental role and emphasize the dance’s delicate intricacy
