Performance of Old Janger Troupe of Kedaton Hamlet

Performance of Old Janger Troupe of Kedaton HamletWhen mentioning about the Janger art performance, our mind will immediately refer to the Kedaton Janger Troupe of Denpasar. Understandably, the traditional art troupe from Kedaton hamlet, Kesiman, East Denpasar, is quite old. Even, it has already reached more than half a century. Although being quite old, the existence of this troupe is still maintained until now. Just look at their performance in the anniversary of Bingin Temple, Thursday (Oct 24). This Janger seemed to still exist and even appeared energetic. “Janger troupe of Kedaton has its own regeneration,” said Made Sukaraka and Made Geguh posing the figures initiating the Janger troupe of Kedaton.

According to them, the Kedaton Janger troupe was established in 1958 originated from the desire of some residents of Kedaton, Sumerta, who had talent to pay devotion. Like tit for tat, the community welcomed the idea. Village board was approving it, so the dancers gathered to pay devotional works. Vivacity of hamlet residents was so high that finally decided to establish a group of dancers consisting of boys and girls from local hamlet named “the Janger Troupe of Kedaton.” The troupe had a task to pay devotional works every temple anniversary of the Bingin Temple.
In line with the passage of time, thanks to the blessing of the lord venerated in the Bingin Temple that finally came down to endow the Janger with a bun. It was used to dance and sanctified by residents of Kedaton hamlet. Since then, the troupe had an obligation to perform a dance during the piodalan in the local temple. Not only that, it also has a wealth of experience in making performance at various staging across Bali so that it was getting more famous until now. It has become an icon for Kedaton hamlet and a source of inspiration for the development of the arts in the area of Sumerta, East Denpasar subdistrict and Bali in general. (BTN/015)
