Sucoro said  the performance showcased stories inspired by the Karmawibangga reliefs carved into the ground floor of the Borobudur Temple.

Yayasan Brayat Penangkaran Borobudur has developed three stories, namely Prahara Bumi Shambarabudara (Shambarabudara Earth Tempest), Kisah Asmara di Bukit Karmawibhangga (Love Story in Karmawibhangga Hill) and Pangeran Bajang (Bajang Prince).

Eight groups of local artists will take turns performing the dance. These groups come from the Magelang, Wonosobo, Temanggung and Boyolali regencies in Central Java. (jes/kes)
