Work in pairs. Read the dialog below with correct intonation and pronunciation. Act out the dialog in front of the class.
Dinda: Nadya, what are you doing?
Nadya: I am reading an article about Wayang.
Dinda: What do you learn?
Nadya: Wayang is derived from Indonesian word for shadow, bayang. It is considered to be the oldest freestanding puppet form. Wayang kulit is made from buffalo skin.
Dinda: Really? I cannot believe it. What else do you find?
Nadya: Here it is an interesting thing. Let me read it for you. It has been debated whether or not puppetry is indigenous to Indonesia or it was introduced from India or China. Indigenous origins are argued by scholars who point toward connections between the jesters and ancestral spirits; the jester characters that appear in every play have no precedent, for example Semar.
Dinda: Semar? Isn't he said to be the ancestral spirit of the island of Java?
Nadya: Yes, he is. Until now, puppets along with other cultures like carvings and gongs are considered to be objects that ancestral spirits can temporarily inhabit.
Dinda: Hmm... that's right. Where can we watch the puppets performance?
Nadya: This article says that performances of puppetry are still held once a year in some villages at cemeteries where the founders of each village are buried.
Dinda: After reading the article, what do you think about wayang?
Nadya: Wayang has been with us since a long time ago. We as the new generation should protect and maintain wayang as one of our cultures.
Dinda: I agree with you.
