Srikandhi Dances Lengger PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Srikandhi Dances Lengger free pdf The book is structured around the translation of a Javanese shadow theater performance entitled Srikandhi Mbarang Lengger ("Srikandhi Becomes an Itinerant Dancer" or "Srikandhi Dances Lengger"), performed only in the Banyumas region (in west Central Java) by the locally renowned puppeteer, Ki Sugino Siswocarito. This study is a translation of the story both in a strict textual-linguistic sense and in a more general interpretive sense, providing an understanding of what the performance means to its Banyumas audience. More important, it shows how the puppeteer transforms the culturally universal traditions of Javanese ritual, shadow-puppet theater, and music to particularize the entire performance event for a local audience.
