Batubulan others great claim to fame is trance – every morning at 9.30 am. Here you can witness the eternal conflict between Ratu Barong, the faithful guardian of community, who looks like an overdressed cross between a lion and a Pekinese dog, and the pendulous-breasted Rangda, denomic mistress of the graveyard. At the height of the drama, Barong’s entranced acolytes turn their serpentine-bladed krises upon themselves, ussully with no ill effect. Even the Balinese, who find a trance state easy to slip into, draw the line at trancing every day, so they have invented more mundane tricks to avoid being wounded by their sharp blades. The Barong dance, as the perfomance has recently been renamed for accuracy, is nonetheless an impressive spectacle, and it is not unusual for one or teo of the players to unexpectedly drop into a gunuine trance. Three very professional groups perform the Barong Dance each morning. Barong and kris dance is included in the bali nature holiday package that we offered to you.
