Abstract

This paper explores how musicians and singers in gamelan performances represent ideals to criticize groups of people. The researcher believes that by implementing Thandeka K Chapman’s approach (2011), in which personal, community, and global levels of social interactions forge meanings, musicians and audiences emphasize the significant issues in community. Using the idea the writer intends to show that articulating appropriate themes from social contexts, musicians and singers strengthen issues in social, political and cultural domains that result in the negotiation of the concepts of: balance of status, recognition of right, refinement of social conducts, better relationship between human and natures, and the like. Through metaphors in performances they mediate the dream and the reality they want to manifest in their contexts. Keywords: performance, Indonesia, gamelan, narrative, justice
