King Jaya Pangus Cursed into Barong Landung

King Jaya Pangus Cursed into Barong LandungMask dance-drama entitled King Jaya Pangus could entertain the audiences of the Bali Arts Festival (BAF) XXXV. Such classical traditional art was not only watched by local community, but also loved by foreign tourists. The art performance was presented the Tri Pusaka Sakti Foundation from Pekandelan hamlet, Batuan Village, Sukawati on the Angsoka Stage, Wednesday (Jun 26). There were 60 artists supporting the art presentation. It was accompanied with gong kebyar gamelan so that it was more familiar among the audience. Started with the performance of mask creation entitled Nikko Mask, it was telling about Balinese life being busy with a variety of cultural activities.
Furthermore, it was resumed with Sekar Madu mask denoting a development of the old mask danced by women. Interestingly, the appearance of the old mask invited the audience to laugh because the movements were funny and entertaining. As the peak, it featured the story of King Jaya Pangus dance-drama. It told about King Jaya Pangus becoming a king in charge in the area in Central Bali and Northern Bali. One upon a time, the King came across with a Chinese merchant having a beautiful daughter named Kang Cing Wei. Her beauty made the King fall in love again and intend to marry Kang Cing Wei.

The king then proposed, and was accepted by Kang Cing Wei with some conditions before he married to her. The king had to run the tooth filing ceremony tradition and use perforated coins (Chinese coins). Without thinking twice, the king approved the conditions. However, when King Jaya Pangus and Princess Kang Cing Wei married, Goddess Danu posing his first wife was getting angry. Thus, the King and Kang Cing Wei were cursed into Barong Landung. The King became Jero Gede, while Kang Cing Wei became Jero Luh. In the curse, the Barong Landung should make ngelawang (gallivanting show) every Galungan and Kuningan festivity as a form of punishment and protection to people.
Nyoman Budiarta as coordinator of the art troupe, said, the mask drama-dance by the Tri Pusaka Sakti Foundation was essentially a Pajegan Mask Dance packed and danced by many people. “I myself and dance trainer I Made Djimat are trying to give innovation,” he said. He explained the story was a combination of Balinese and Chinese cultural elements. It was described there was an acculturation between the concept of Hinduism and Buddhism in Bali. “Bali as the island of the arts should never be static. It means, we should not take the ancient arts for granted without any innovation,” he said. (BTN/ocha)
