WHAT IS KETOPRAK MATARAM?

DESCRIPTION:

Ketoprak (Kethoprak) Mataram performances is a classical and traditional dramatic show using the classical Javanese music orchestra (Gamelan) that developed in the area of Central Java, Yogyakarta, and parts of East Java. 

The difference between Ketoprak Mataram and Ketoprak in other cities lies in the accentuation of dialogue. Ketoprak Surakarta and East Java dialogue accents tend to be wayang wong dialogue accent patterns, while Mataram ketoprak tends to accent to the daily dialogue of the people.

Beside the language, the element of clothing or costume used by the ketoprak actor also contains the character’s teachings and one’s position. Ketoprak Mataram has become one with the life, culture, language and soul of the people of Yogyakarta.
