Lenggang Nyai

Lenggang Nyai


This dance is called Lenggang Nyai because it tells the story of Nyai Dasimah. The girl from Jakarta who is confused to choose a spouse between Dutch and Indonesian men. And he finally determines a man of Dutch descent, but throughout his marriage, Nyai revolted because of the rules made by her husband. Feeling the rights of women taken, the story finally inspired an artist named Wiwiek Widiastuti and made a dance called Lenggang Nyai Dance.

This dance uses Gambang Kromong music, and a red colored costume with head jewelry. If you notice there is a little nuance of Chinese tradition.

The first thing that I noticed about his art is its expressive style. The contents are poetic with its nostalgic tonality.
