Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A striking feature of the performances of the majority of horse dance (jaranan) groups is the appearance of trance dancers, who are used to establish contact with the spirits of ancestors. The government discourages this practice, and this book examines ways in which local companies have gone about preserving the dramatic genre.
