Mengadap Rebab

This opening dance of the traditional theatre performance called Mak Yong is considered to be a court or classical dance due to the nature and performance structure. The very courtly and graceful style, beginning in a seated position, lowered eyeline and finger movements are in keeping with this style. The biggest difference is that here the dancers all face the ‘rebab’ which is stringed instrument played vertically. The lead dancer also sings a haunting song telling of virtue and respect for nature and life.
