Reog Ponorogo is now a story about King Ponorogo who intends to apply for the daughter of Kediri, Dewi Ragil Kuning, but in the middle of the trip he is intercepted by Raja Singabarong from Kediri. Raja Singabarong's forces consisted of peacocks and lions, while from the Ponorogo Kingdom King Kelono and his Deputy Bujanganom, escorted by warok (men dressed in black in their dances), and this warok had deadly black magic. The whole dance is a war dance between the Kingdom of Kediri and the Kingdom of Ponorogo, and pitting black magic between the two, the dancers are 'possessed' when performing the dance.
Until now the people of Ponorogo only follow what is their ancestral heritage as a very rich cultural inheritance. In his experience, Reog Art is a creation of human creations that are formed by the existence of a belief that is inherited from generation to generation and maintained. The ceremony also uses conditions that are not easy for lay people to fulfill without a clear lineage. they adhere to the Parental lineage and customary law that is still valid.
