Never thought we'd get old, maybe we're still young
Maybe we always look back and think it was better than it was
Maybe these are the moments
Maybe I've been missing what it's about
Been scared of the future, thinking about the past
While missing out on now
We've come so far, I guess I'm proud
And I ain't worried about the wrinkles around my smile
I've got some scars, I've been around
I've felt some pain, I've seen some things, but I'm here now
Those good old days
(Good old days)
Ketoprak (Javanese: Kethoprak) is a theatrical genre of Java featuring actors who may also sing to the accompaniment of the gamelan. It draws its stories from Javanese history and romances. - wikipedia.
The following weeks I'll be featuring photos taken at Kampung Seni THR Surabaya. Photos of the place and people participating in Ketoprak show. One of local traditions which unfortunately is slowly dying. Despite broken down place and lack of interest by current people, the participants are lively and happy to be part of the show. I hope my photos could help raise awareness of this tradition.
The show must go on!
