The pace of reflection. Reflecting the relationship of tradition and modernity in Balinese legong
Based on fieldwork on dance theater (a certain lepong idea on the occastion of a temple festival) in Bali Hornbacher discusses the insufficient western tendency to connect the notion of cognition, or reflection with the form of the discourse. She concludes that the reflexive and practical reconciliation of tradition and modernity can be achieved even today by the means of the traditional Balinese theater language.
