Wacana Sejarah Dalam Ungkapan Teater Betawi

 
 
Penulis: Ninuk Kleden-Probonegoro

The assumption which underlies this paper is that theatre in general can document empirical events which take place in a society as the surroundings of the theatre, and that such a documentation is put down and undergoes a sort of fixationin the narrative of that theatre. Based on such an assumption the author tries to look into the narratives of the Betawi theatre, Lenong and Topeng. In fact certain sorts of narrative deserve, according to the author, a special attention, since they might document certain ideas which, though not manifest in the performance, might be of great importance and significance.
