The ‘mini’ Puppet Show by Woro Mustikasiwi in Sanggar Greget Semarang

In Sanggar Greget Semarang, there was a mini puppet show on Sunday afternoon around 4 p.m. Sanggar Greget held a “syukuran” (expression of gratitude to God) for its birthday that already on April 25 and the achievement got as The Best Performance in Pawai Budaya Nusantara TMII at the same time.

The puppet show was presented by Woro Mustikasiwi, one of Sanggar Greget’s students. She is around 9 years old and study as the 3rd grade student at SD Jomblang. This amazing kid can dance some traditional dances, “nembang” (sing Javanesse Song that called Macapat without any instrument), and puppetry. In her very young age, she is already become a “dalang cilik” (narrator and puppeteer of traditional shadow plays). \(^.^)/
The show ran about 1 hour. The scene of the puppet show told us about Abimanyu and Punakawan. It used a simple conversation, of course in Javanesse. So, the most of the audience dominated children under 12 years old could understand the content. They were enjoying the show while they were eating “nasi kuning” together. They also were laughing when Woro said something funny and answered the question given.
In the middle of the puppet show, Woro also did “nembang”. She introduced her friend, Nugroho Pawestri, who beautifully sang some songs together with others “sinden” (a singer for puppet show) while the puppet show was going on. She is also 3rd grade student. At that time, she sang Dhandhanggula Semarangan and Gambang Semarang.
The purpose of this show is to introduce the puppetry to Sanggar Greget’s students (beginner, teenager, and adult). In the middle of the show, Woro introduced some characters in puppet like Batara Guru, Togog, Sri Rama, and Puntadewa. Mas Yoyok, as the owner of Sanggar Greget, wants to all his students not only can dance, but also know the Javanesse culture like Macapat (Java verse form to sing), Gamelan (Java instrument), and Wayang (Puppet).
            As the one of the audience, I did not miss any detail of the show. Lucky I can see the mini puppet show from the very near distance because I sat near the Sinden. Finally, I knew that all “Dalang” use their all part of body, mouth, hands, and also legs. It was a great when I can participate to save Indonesia heritage, especially my motherland, Java. I love to be a Javanesse.

Pawai Budaya Nusantara with Sanggar Greget

22- 24 April 2011
It is my first dancing performance with Sanggar Greget Semarang in Pawai Budaya Nusantara HUT 36th TMII in Jakarta.

On Friday, we went to Jakarta to do Glagi Resik on Saturday at TMII by bus.
We had our performance on Sunday at 3 p.m.
We performed "Batik Dance" to represent the culture and heritage from Jawa Tengah, That is 'Kain Batik'. We walked along TMII, doing Pawai with "Gamelan live".
There are eight groups performed Batik Dance with different properties.
1. Topeng (Mask)
2. Gunungan
4. Cenik
5. Payung (Umbrella)
6. Kain Batik
7. Caping
8. Kipas
and also there was a girl who sat in a chair by doing "Mbathik" used Canting.

in this project, I was Tata Rias Busana (Wardrobe official) with Ira as a coordinator,
Wardrobe team.. .^^
Mbak Wulan, Betania, and Mita.
We prepared the costumes and the jewels that we would wear in Pawai on one week before.
you'll see that we wear the same wardrobe.. \(^.^)/

Finally, We got our trophy as one of the 5 best performances.
It was a good present for our trainer "Mas Yoyok" who had a birthday on 25 April.

and also we met other region, Nusa Tenggara Timur, Nusa tenggara Barat, Kalimantan Tengah,
Jawa Barat, DKI Jakarta, Lampung, and others regions.

Actually I like dancing from I was a child.
I ever felt a great feeling like what I feel when doing 'pawai'.
at that time, I became a Majorette in Marching Band.
I was standing in front and led the team..
it is just the same with dancing, we have to smile and smile everytime when we act.

Life will be too short when we can do everything happily and we can be an useful person for others, for our family, for our environment, and of course, for our nation.
Times fly and we will realize that we can not go back to reach what we should have reach.
But, the everything will run slowly when we only spend our times to 'sleep'.
'sleep' means that we close our eyes. So, we can not see our own life.

Maybe some of us can not reach the dream, can not come to our good place.
But, that is NOT our problem to do something useful for NOT only ourselves.
..with the name of Allah..
I love my life to serve others..
