Bali News: Street Violence in Bangli

(5/11/2014)

A traditional Calonarang performance held in a public square in Bangli, Bali erupted into violence on Monday, May 5, 2104, leaving one dead and three injured.

All the casualties were from the Bangli area.

The dance-drama performance in Lapangan Kapten Mudita in Bangli was an ancient story dated from the 12th century depicting the antics of a bitter widow with black magic powers who brings disease and hardship on the community in an effort to compel someone to marry her daughter.

The Calonarang is among the most sacred and mystical dances of the Balinese dance repertoire that, because of its subject matter, can see both cancers and spectators lured into frenzied trance.

The public dance performance was part of a weeklong celebration of Bangli's 810th anniversary.

While details remain sketchy, a misunderstanding apparently erupted when members of the audience began jostling each other during the performance at around 11:30 pm.

According to Nusa Bali, a 19-year-old man, Putu Yudana, told police he was attacked by a group of young men and he attempted to defend himself with a knife concealed on his person. In the ensuring battle, Kadek Dwi Maliastrawan (20), a tourism academy student died shortly after the attack when one of several knife thrusts severed a main artery.

Injured and hospitalized were Kadek Endriawan (19) with knife wound to the stomach, I Wayan Juliartawan (21) with wound to the ear and hands and I Wayan Arta Wedana Putrra (25) with hand injuries.

Yudana told the police he had no intention of killing anyone and thought his life was under threat. He begged  forgiveness from his victims and their families.
