Barong Dance in Batubulan
This is basically a story about th estruggle between good and evil. Good is personified by the Barong Keket, a strange fun loving creature in the shape of shaggy semi lion. Evil is represented by Rangda, a witch. Ultimately the two characters engage in battle at which point the Barong's keris bearing followers ruh into attack Rangda. The witch however uses her magical powers to turn the keris knives in upon their owners who fall into a trance and start trying to stab themselves. The Barong uses magic to protect his followers from the knives. In the end the Barong triumphs and Rangda retreats to recuperate her strength for the next encounter.

The Barong and Rangda dance is a very powerful performance and is not taken lightly by those involved.
