Reog Ponorogo

In a small city of east java, there is a region named Ponorogo. Reog Ponorogo is a traditional dance from this place. Many stories were told for the origin of the dance. The most famous story is about the rebellion of Ki Ageng Kutu to his King named Kertabumi in the kingdom of Majapahit. The face of the tiger symbolize the king. Ki Ageng Kutu wanted to critic his king, it is shown by someone  who sat at the top of the tiger’s head. The peacock’s fur symbolized the influence from the people around the king who tried to manipulate him to do corruption. Well, whatever the story is…it’s our traditional and culture’s dance guys. ^__^  [aci]
