Stunning Males and Powerful Females

Christina Sunardi

University of Illinois Press

This concluding chapter reflects on the major points made throughout this book, discussing how individual artists have developed personal strategies for situating themselves within the constantly evolving constellations of personal, local, national, and global values that surround the negotiation of masculinity and femininity. Furthermore it returns to the subject of female power and how the performers maintain and make cultural space for the magnetic power of femaleness. Finally, and in spite of performers' concerns about the future of local tradition, the chapter expresses optimism about the future of the performing arts in Malang, demonstrating how a new generation of performers is actively engaging with the art.

Keywords:   masculinity, femininity, female power, cultural space, femaleness, Malang tradition, Malang performing arts
