Collaboration of Arja Operetta Entitled Galuh Lika Liku

Collaboration of Arja Operetta Entitled Galuh Lika LikuThe performance was interesting and full of moral messages. The performance of the arja operetta entitled Galuh Lika Liku presented by Lokananta Dance Studio Singapadu did not only serve as a form of Balinese art preservation, but also grew the arja operetta from an early age. Uniquely, it could be played by children in the nuance of past Bali.

Artistic expression became a subtle part of Balinese daily life. Accompanied with a simple musical instrument made from bamboo, the kid artists were able to integrate the art with the world of its own. They played and sang as if they hinted an inner awareness that the journey of human life from birth had been armed with a contradictory character. There were goodness and badness, delicateness and wildness.

These intricacies of human behavior with different characters were featured in a religious and aesthetic art in the arja operetta collaboration. Commenced with a meow-meow game, the resumed the performance by going up to the stage and watched the arja operetta. After saying prayers, the children chanted wargasari psalmody in line with the ritual procession.

Afterward, it was resumed with the performance of panglembar by presenting Hard Mask and Old Mask Dance symbolizing the journey of human life which was born, grew and developed intelligence and became the paragon in old age. This art presentation was accompanied by Manik Swari Dance Studio Batuyang directed by Made Gde Mandra.

The next scene was the life journey of romance, where Galuh and Liku equally fell in love with Raden Mantri Manis, a crown prince of a kingdom. Here, Galuh showed off the expertise in religiosity in the form of psalmody of dharma and literary appreciation. Meanwhile, the Liku featured contemporary dance movement showing off the passion of the young and modernity.  

Before staging, the activity was commenced with a workshop presenting speakers from the circle of practitioners and artists such as I Nyoman Cerita, I Nyoman Arjana Adiputra and education practitioner I Gde Rudia Adiputra. Meanwhile, the creative idea aspect was presented by I Ketut Sumadi, an adviser to Pagari Community and Director of Religious Studies Graduate Program at the Hindu Dharma Institute (IHDN) Denpasar.
