Indian Ramayana Ballet Hypnotizes Audiences

Indian Ramayana Ballet Hypnotizes AudiencesWhen the drums started to be beaten and the tintinnabulation of bracelets began to be played, the audience could only be amazed. Typical strains of musical rhythm then delivered the dancers to move to center stage. They also played a role. One by one the sequel was presented neatly. Audience did not only get amazed but also hypnotized by the expression of each dancer.

It was the performance of the Ramayana epic in the ballet style made in Natya Mandala of the Indonesian Institute of the Arts (ISI) Denpasar, Sunday (Sep 15). The artists of the Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra, New Delhi, India, presented an elegant show. Such a spectacular performance was discernible from the beginning to the end of the show. Such a successful show was produced by an outstanding team work.

All the players performed synchronously and energetically. Quick replacement of costumes and scenes made the story line unbroken. While, characters coming down the stage and walking among the audience created a sense of participation. Moreover, the monkeys playing around and jumping up and down created a linear show and it was so funny and humorous.

Fusion of the dancing styles, amazing music and costumes were vibrant and beautiful as well as the entire storyline gave captivating storyline. The show taking place for one and a half hour performed 17 different sequel of the Ramayana epic. They included the episode in which the golden deer rescued Sita from Pancavati and kidnapping of Sita by Ravana often portrayed in the Kecak Dance performance by Balinese artists.

The performance was opened with the lighting of ceremonial lamps by Consul General of India along with the Rector of the ISI Denpasar. It was resumed with the performance of the Selat Segara Dance by the students of the ISI Denpasar. “We are very grateful to have been brought the Ramayana ballet to Bali and hopefully this excellent cooperation between the ISI and the Consulate General of India in Bali could continue,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Consul General in his speech highlighted the great efforts made by Indonesian people, especially Java and Bali in preserving and popularizing the Ramayana epic through the performing arts. They immortalized it in various forms of literature both in written and oral, including the Kekawin of Ramayana in Old Javanese, Ramayana story, leather puppet, human puppet, ballet, Kecak Dance performance, painting on fabric, wood, paper and other medium.

Earlier, the Indian artists had visited Yogyakarta and Surabaya to participate in the International Ramayana Festival. They also made performance in Jakarta before resuming to Bangkok, Thailand. In Bali, they made performance at the ISI Denpasar and Gianyar Cultural Center. (BTN/015)
