                  Explores what lies within the character of ‘Topeng Keras’. One of the sacred Masks that appear in Topeng Babad. One of Bali’s oldest and most sacred Dance Mask Rituals. 'A dancer often speaks about the ‘life’ of a mask. Whether the mask is alive and whether that energy within the mask partners well with the dancer. Kadek shares that in his experience you cannot find the true face of the mask in one or two tries. The face of the hard mask must be discovered by the mask maker. For it to be alive. It exists outside of the mask maker. The mask maker is a tool to help the mask realise itself.
