The Development of Jaranan Temanggungan as Indonesian Intangible Heritage

Slamet .


Margowati was a village in Temanggung Regency. This village had the potential to be used as a tourist village. In Kapalan Hamlet there was a site similar with horse breeding grounds, marked with inscriptions in the form of horse footprint. This finding was also related to the name of the hamlet called Kapalan, which was another name for horse. Most of the Kapalan Hamlet people made handicrafts related to horses, such as kuda kepang (horse-shaped toys made of woven bamboo slats). The famous form of art was a Jaranan dance, or usually was called as Kuda Lumping. This research was about the identity of Jaranan dance in Temanggung Regency. Although Jaranan dance was found in many regions in Indonesia, each region had different characteristic. This research was a study of Jaranan Temanggungan as intangible cultural heritage. Jaranan was designated as an icon of intangible cultural heritage, not only from historical factors, but because of its current position in society. The form of choreography and performance of Jaranan was closely related to the function of Jaranan in its supporting community. Temanggung style Jaranan dance patterns had a distinctive characteristic hence it was called Jaranan Temanggungan. This research needed to be done to find out the dance pattern of Jaranan Temanggungan and the connection of Jaranan Temanggungan to the site of Kapalan Hamlet, Margowati Village. Specific objective to be achieved was to provide knowledge and understanding for the wider community about the dance patterns of Jaranan Temanggungan choreography for further development. The output of this research was to produce a written study of intangible cultural heritage as well as to produce new dance patterns that form the Jaranan Temanggungan choreography.
