Legong Buwuk as the Answer of Disaster

Legong Buwuk as the Answer of DisasterThis traditional dance is better known as Legong Buwuk. The look and movement are similar to other Legong Dance. It is one of the classical dances having always been an icon of Balinese dance. The Legong Buwuk was inspired by classical Legong having existed before.

It presents the aesthetic paradox of the original Legong Dance. Generally it puts on neat clothes with sparkling golden head ornament. However, it is unlike the case of Legong Buwuk which only puts on simple costumes. Even, the costumes seem random because the fabric was obsolete. Its head ornament is without gold leaf so that it looks so obsolete.

The birth of this art poses a response to disaster experienced by the family of Mrs. Ni Made Kinten as the leader of Miniarthis Dance Studio, Karangasem. The fire incident had destroyed all the properties including her precious costumes, songket and gringsing fabrics. Kindled by the incident, her son I Gede Gusman Adhi Gunawan then got up and answered the disaster by composing a Legong Dance.

This famous choreographer was then inspired by the fabric remnants left by the fire to compose a dance entitled Legong Buwuk. Creation of the dance also received the support and input from the House of Cultural activists at Penggak Men Mersi whose musical accompaniment was interpreted by I Wayan ‘Pacet’ Sudiarsa. This dance is accompanied by Gong Suling gamelan music displayed at the Open Stage of Ardha Candra, Bali Art Center, recently.

In its performance, it also featured some dance creations such as the Songket Dance, Janger Ngapat Dance and Glow Bali Station Dance. The captivate performance by young artist community of Karangasem was closed with a spectacular fire dance by Adi ‘Siput’ Saputra and friends. (BTN/Suka)
