Japanese Artists Proudly Present Balinese Dance at BAF

Japanese Artists Proudly Present Balinese Dance at BAFHaving the opportunity to make performance at the Bali Arts Festival (BAF) is not only a pride for the local artists of the Island of the Gods, but also a dream for foreign artists like the art activists coalesced into the Wyarihita Dance Studio, Japan. These artists continue to do their creativity so they have the opportunity to make a performance at the BAF.

Interestingly, they do not show off the art of their own country, but traditional dances belong to the Hindu community in Bali. Even, the dance studio having been developed since 1993 in Japan’s Yokohama City and making performance in the BAF for seven years always presents different dances, such as classical, popular and new creation dance.

“In the BAF, we always performed different dances. In other words, it will not be monotonous. We adjust to the program taught in the dance studio. In addition, we also want to participate in preserving the rare Balinese arts,” said the coach and owner of the Wyarihita Dance Studio, Ni Wayan Deni, amidst the preparation of performance at the Bali Art Center.
At the BAF XXXVI 2014, they showed off classical and popular dances. They included the Legong Supraba Duta danced by Chie Nagasawa, Nobue Takahashi, Tamami Ishii, Tomoko Nonaka, and Suzoko Yahagi. Then, Kupu-Kupu Tarum was presented by Emiko Nakai/Ni Putu Sulasmi, Yumi Takahashi, Midori Kadooka, Masako Kimura and Fumiko Komatsu.

Meanwhile, the Legong Kuntul was performed by Miho Ishikawa, Kyoko Makihata and Naoko Seki; Baris Tunggal by I Made Fairdy Rusdrajiana Putra; Legong Guak Macok by Naomi Komura, Misuzu Moriyama; and Candra Metu by Emiko Nakai / Ni Putu Sulasmi, Yumi Takahashi, Fumiko Komatsu, Ni Putu Masrapini and Denise Inaba.

Deny admitted the traditions and culture imbued by Hinduism had inspired and gave freedom to make expression for the artists from around the world. So far, many Japanese people had been successfully trained to be a Balinese dancer. Aside from children, teenager or young people and parents, chiefly housewives, were also getting interested in learning Balinese arts. “Performance in the BAF is eagerly awaited because they hope to show off Balinese dances on their native land,” she said.
According to Deni of Kubutambahan-born, Buleleng, the wife to Takahisa Inaba, they had no trouble in following the rhythm and movement of Balinese dances, both the classical and creation dance. Other than regular exercising activities on Monday-Friday, the members of Wyarihita Dance Studio also filled in some events such as the arts and cultural festival organized by the Volunteer Organization of Japan, entertainment at nursing homes, schools of the disabled, primary schools, secondary schools and other educational foundations.

The main event was at the Indonesian Embassy in Tokyo and a variety of other events, including filling in the programs of the Bali Arts Festival. “The dances staged are full of Balinese nuances, although some of the dancers are Japanese artists. Hopefully, the dance performance will further strengthen the taksu (divine vibration) of Bali as the Island of Paradise,” said Deni. (BTN/015)
