Dance Events and Freedom

Dance Events and Freedom

(p.104) Four Dance Events and Freedom
Erotic Triangles
University of Chicago Press

This chapter explores the landscape of Sundanese men's dance events up to the early twenty-first century and investigates changes and continuities in event protocols. The third essential piece of a dance event is the potential for dancing by male participants who perceive themselves to be free of constraints. The male participants themselves dance the contradiction that regulates their daily lives: maintaining a sense of self, individual responsibility, and individual power in a social world that demands conformity. They must negotiate how to be bangga and malu at the same time.

Keywords:   Sundanese men, dance, dancing, self, responsibility, power, bangga, malu, freedom
