KECAK FIRE DANCE
The Kecak is one of the most populer shows amongst visitors to Bali. Performance start at dusk, with the lighting of flickering torches in a giant candelabra and the placing of offerings on the stage. Sudden shouts pierce the tranquility of the evening, and out of the darkness run a troupe of chanting men wearing black and white check sarong, chesta gleaming in the torchlight.
They quickly arrange themselves in a series of concentric circles around the candelabra, where they sway and chant, one moment in unison, the next moment in syncopated counterpoint. A small group of dancers in full traditional costume perform an excerpt from the Ramayana in the midst of the waving sea of arms and bodies, dancing to the orchestrated voices.
The “chak-chak-chak” of the chorus is adapted from the Sanghyang chant, and the entire performance has an ethereal quality enhanced by the flickering of the torchlight. The first Kecak was created by dancers in Bedulu, Gianyar, who were commissioned by the well-known expatriate painter, Walter Spies. The first simple version was an immediate success, and now Bali boats at least a dozen professional Kecak groups that perform regularly at the larger hotels and in special open stages built for purpose in their banjar.
