Javanese Dance

Javanese traditional dance is not just a combination of beautiful movements· It glues together the body and soul of dancers, so it is a very powerful psychological and ideological weapon.
The Javanese traditional dance movements are also conditioned by the use of the traditional costume. A very important characteristic of the dance is that the movements are not produced from within the body; there is always something external that moves/pulls our body towards a certain direction.

Highlights

  • Have the opportunity to learn Javanese dance from our qualified professionals.
  • Experience cultural immersion and get to know a country and its people.
  • Learn the origins of a particular traditional dance with our mentors.
  • Get a chance to feel the different culture and learn the culture while travelling to Indonesia, especially to Jogjakarta.

Batik painting

Batik painting is a historically beautiful take on culture throughout the world, and batik in Indonesia is perhaps the best known form across the globe. There are numerous uses and meanings for batik art, but the most basic format includes using resist techniques to strategically dye fabric into a myriad of designs. Learning how to make batik art is a wonderful way to pay tribute to this important and cherished art form.
Making a batik painting, artists use pencils or other mediums to sketch in the basic pattern desired in the work. Then, often using hot wax or occasionally resin, the patterns are redrawn. Once the wax is dried, the cloth is dipped in dye. And, a copper cap is used during the process to more broadly cover areas where dye is not needed.

Highlights

  • Learn deeply about the Javanese philosophy behind some of the batik patterns.
  • Gain a greater appreciation of our mission to not only present you these ancient traditions, but to make sure this rich cultural heritage continues going into your feelings and souls.
  • Have fun discovering how to draw with hot wax on cotton using a canting, cap or both, with one dye color. After boiling out the wax, you'll have a great souvenir of your travelling Jogjakarta.
  • You'll be amazed at how much fun making batik is.

Karawitan

​​A very special opportunity to learn about and play a Javanese gamelan. A gamelan is an orchestra from Indonesia largely made up of percussion instruments including gongs, drums and of various shapes and sizes. Gamelan is made from bronze. Led by our gamelan expert, the workshop will include a short introduction to the cultural context of gamelan and then the you will learn and perform some traditional Javanese music.
Playing the gamelan is very accessible and requires no previous experience. Instruments are traditionally played sitting on the floor. Please let us know in advance if you may find this difficult and we can make alternative arrangements.

Highlights

  • No experience is needed to take part in this unique workshop!
  • The instruments are played on the floor so trousers are more comfortable. Also we ask all participants and onlookers to remove their shoes.
  • Please do bring your camera. Also you may make an audio or video recording at the end of the workshop to document the group’s final performance. You will not be permitted to record the whole workshop.
  • Bring back home an unforgettable experience during your travelling to Jogjakarta.

“A must see in Jogja”

Purawisata provides a full evening of entertainment. It's a play that tells the famous Ramayana story, but from a Javanese angle (with Javanese music, etc)

“Javanese-flavored Ramayana play”

This is one of my favorite attractions in Jogja. It's a play that tells the famous Ramayana story, but from a Javanese angle (with Javanese music, etc).

“Full evening of entertainment”

Purawisata provides a full evening of entertainment plus a nice buffet meal. I arranged the trip through my hotel and got picked up and dropped off. It isn't too far from central Yogya
