AS A BOY’S ARENA – Belva Atsil

Benjang is a performing art that was created in Ujung Berung region, Bandung City. Initially, this art was an event of gratitude for the rice harvest by gathering with local residents, but as time goes by, Benjang is now better known as a celebration for children who have been circumcised. With all the changes in form that have occurred, now Benjang is starting to cause a lot of unrest among its fans and even the artists themselves, with the presence of individuals who misuse the series of attractions in Benjang to carry out even harassment against women, claiming that they are doing this because they are “unconscious” or “possessed”.
