Wayang Golek Asep Sunandar S.rar [WORK]

Potentially there are hundreds of kinds of wayang. There are a few simple rules that help one sort out what the form is likely to entail. In Indonesian theatre the first term in a name is likely to refer to the genre. Here wayang is the genre and means a performance which is narrated by a dalang, accompanied by a gamelan, and using types and structured improvisation. The second term will usually be the medium in which the performance is presented. This may be painted story scrolls (beber), leather shadow puppets (kulit), flat wooden puppets (klitik), wooden rod puppets (golek), masks (topeng) or an unmasked dancer (wong or orang).

The third major language group practising wayang today is the Sundanese speakers of West Java. Wayang golek purwa sunda uses wooden rod puppets and Sundanese language to present Mahabharata or sometimes Ramayana stories. Most dalang in Sunda are descended from Javanese speaking performers who migrated to the highland in the 19th century. Dalang present out of doors in a performance of about six hours on a raised platform built for the event. A horizontal banana log is used as the playing board. The 30-50 centimetre figures have a central rod on which the body and head sit. Two additional rods attach to the wrists of the three dimensional wood figure. Very dynamic and lifelike movement is possible and thirty puppets may be used in a single show. The gamelan has fewer instruments than in Central Java and the puppet master always brings all his own instruments and players.
