Aji Killip, a child who lives in the remote interior of East Kalimantan, has a bad habit of destroying plants in his surroundings—and he does so even more once he becomes skilled in using a mandau (a traditional weapon of Kalimantan). One day, his grandmother has an idea of how to cure her grandson of this habit. That night before they go to sleep his grandmother tells Aji that, “when a boy likes to destroy plants, sometime in the future the plants will come back and they may even kill him.” It seems that his old grandmother’s story is effective, especially after one night when she hangs masks all around the house and on the plants that Aji had destroyed, so that finally the little boy is cured and doesn’t hurt plants anymore. Besides presenting this masked performance of the folktale by Tom Ibnur and Deddy Luthan, the musical performance will also include dances from the interior of Kalimantan, such as Kancet Temenggang, Kancet Lasan, Kancet Mendau, and Gantar (Giring-giring) Belian. The dialogues and songs will be in Indonesian.
