Barong and Keris Dance

Detail Information

The Barong Dance is a powerful battle of good and evil. The dance is actually a battle. The Barong costume is sacred, imbued with the soul of the Barong. It performs a kind of exorcism every time it dances.

The dance is, to us, an entertaining show; full of humor and action. To the Balinese, also, it is an entertaining show. In addition, it is an opportunity to keep the cosmos in balance. The Barong battles the evil Rangda.

Barong and Keris Dance which is durated for one hours is regularly showing their performance every day from 09.30 to 10.30 AM. This performance is especially dedicated to both local and international tourists. Barong itself is an ancient creature which symbolizes “the goodness”, while Rangda (giant) is a great ancient creature which symbolizes “the evil”. The battle between these two great creatures is packed in a nice dance and mystical music which are composed by ± 75 artist from Kesiman, Denpasar. This art show is always become a unique attraction for the visitors, it is because in a certain segment, they will enjoy the magnificence of “Ngurek” (stab the Kris into particular body) from some dancers. Magically, they will be not hurt by this action.
