Of all three dances which I witnessed at the Nusa Dua Fiesta, I was most fascinated by a solo dance called the Tari Kebyar Duduk, a relatively modern choreography done almost solely in a sitting position (duduk is “to sit” in Indonesian). The young dancer, a member of a “master class” guild wore a traditional Balinese costume of
anteng
, a strip of stiff gilded prada/perada cloth bound around their torso like a tube and a kamben sarung that sports a long mermaid’s tail that is flipped gracefully all throughout the performance.
