We will witness the performance of Monkey (Kechak) Dance, the most
unique dance among Balinese dances. It is not accompanied by any
instrumental music, but by a male chorus performed by over 70 men.
Their hands and torso movements with sudden jerks swaying back and
forth illuminated by torchlight, gives an unreal impression. In the
middle of the circular stage, The Ramayana Story will be performed as
the Hindu version of Romeo and Juliet but with happy ending.
Afterwards will be performed Sang Hyang Dedari (Heavenly Nymphs) Dance
in which two pre pubescent girls will dance the same and unison
movements with closed eyes, and Sang Hyang Jaran (Fire) Dance in which
the dancer while in trance will dance over a bonfire made of coconut
husks without getting hurt.
