|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject investigates the political, social and cultural significance of traditional performing arts in contemporary Indonesia. Diverse performance styles including music, dance, and puppetry are examined as entertainment, religious ritual, political act and as sites for social conflict and accord. Students become familiar with different analytical approaches to performance through readings grounded in anthropology, ethnomusicology, and sociolinguistics, and experience a range of performance practices through media and hands-on gamelan music workshops.
