Kecak Dance presented daily.

In the Amphitheatre at Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park, Bali, visitors can see a free daily performance of the famous Balinese Kecak dance. Collaboration between performers of Kecak and other traditional dances results in unique and fresh dance performances every day.

Kecak started as a trance ritual with male chorus accompaniment. The German artist and musician Walter Spies became deeply interested in the ritual while living in Bali in the 1930s. He worked at recreating it as a drama, based on the Hindu Ramayana and included dance, designed to be presented to Western tourist audiences.

This transformation is an example of what James Clifford describes as part of the 'modern art-culture system' in which, 'the West or the central power adopts, transforms, and consumes non-Western or peripheral cultural elements, while making 'art' which was once embedded in the culture as a whole, into a separate entity.' Spies worked with Wayan Limbak who popularised the dance while travelling around the world with Balinese performance groups. These travels have helped to make the Kecak famous throughout the world.
