Betawi’s Topeng Blantek Shows in My Village


The picture above shows the Topeng Blantektheater performed in the road junction in my village. Topeng Blantek is a traditional theater of Betawi. The theater tells the story about the daily life of Betawi people with social critique in a comedian style. The Betawi people usually invite the Topeng Blantek group to perform in their home when they have wedding reception or circumcision thanksgiving party in the Betawi village. On the last Sunday 15 October 2009, the Fajar Ibnu Sena Topeng Blantek performed in my village (home ). This is to celebrate the establishmnet of my village to become kampoeng agrowisata.


The picture above shows a hot but funny dialog of the actor and actress with Betawi dialect.
