Barong Dance
Set to the Gong Kebyar - an orchestra formed by a group of gamelan instruments (musical instruments with five notes forged from copper and bronze) and various metal gongs and symbols. The Barong dance is the classic story of good (The Barong) triumphing over evil ( The evil witch Rangda). The Barong is a large lion type creature played by two men, Rangda is the epitome of evil with long fingernails and droopy breasts. The Barong is going about his business until he is interrupted by Rangda. Ultimately a battle ensues and the Barong’s followers begin attacking Rangda with their Keris (daggers). Rangda, being a witch, is able to use magical powers to turn the daggers against their owners, who fall into a trance and try to stab themselves. The Barong, also having magical powers, protects his followers from harm and Rangda retreats into the forest to rest and prepare for the next battle. The intensity of the Barong's followers in their attempts to stab themselves is really quite frightening and the trance is usually very real - and there is always a priest on hand to revive the dancers with holy water.
