Depart from your Bali hotel alongside your knowledgeable guide and venture to the venue of the impending spectacle. Arrive at the provincial village of Batabulan and disembark at a rustic amphitheater to witness the rich cultural expression of dance. Hear an expectant hush descend over the audience as troupes of talented dancers adorned with colorful costumes emerge onto stage.
See three hypnotizing dances performed during your evening experience; relish the electric atmosphere of the Kecak (Monkey) Dance as you see 50 men brandish blazing bamboo torches and telling the story of Prince Rama and his courageous rescue of a kidnapped princess. Watch performers become entranced and step over smoldering coals without feeling pain during the Fire Dance, and then see the convulsive choreography of the Saghyang (Trance) Dance, a traditional dance originally performed as an exorcism.
After the captivating performances conclude, return to your hotel with your guide, who will be happy to recommend local restaurants in the surrounding area.
