Sisilia Dian Santika Dewi

Abstract


The Barongan Kucingan dance is a dance which imitates the movements of a cat and is
supported by properties in the form of a barongan(a lion’s head) that covers the face of the dancer.
The Barongan Kucing dance is believed to depict the King Singo Barong. This research aims to
find out more about the form and role of the Barongan Kucing dance as performed by the Guyubing
Budaya Art Group at a Jaranan art performance in the town of Blitar. The research is qualitative
in nature and uses an analytical descriptive method which analyzes the results of the observation
in the field and describes them in written form. One of the stages of the research is data collection,
obtained through a library study, observation, documentation, and interviews. The results of the
research about the form of the Barongan Kucing danceas performed by the Guyubing Budaya Art
Group show in detail various aspects or elements of its choreography, including the dancer, the
movements, the floor patterns, the music, the costumes, and the properties. The role of the Barongan
Kucing dance in the Jaranan art performance by the Guyubing Budaya Art Group is to attract the
attention of the audience at the start of the performance and again at the end of the performance to
provide a climax which is marked by a trance dance.
Keywords: Form of Performance, Barongan Kucingan Dance, and Role.
