Valuable Lessons from the "Lessons"
By Nasrul Azwar

In an article Eugenio Barba and his colleagues entitled Anatomie de L 'Acteur (1985) translated into Indonesian Yudiaryani mentioned: the word "text" before showing the text written or oral, printed or handwritten, it means that knitted together. In this sense, there is no present without a knitted play together without the "text". That is, what is associated with the "text" (knitted) can be interpreted as' dramaturgi'-which means-a drama-eregon work, the appearance of the workings of a behavior in the performance plot. It is difficult to distinguish the approach of dramaturgy, staging is considered to be "directing" a director and what is referred to as "writing" an author. The difference is clearly visible only through the cultivation of theater, through the interpretation of a written text.

In the area of immense cultural texts, the director of the jungle penetrated the icon, a symbol of cultural and other social bookmarks to be realized in the estimation of space and time in one frame of the stage with creative director accountability.
Interpretation with the title theater often has a tendency actualization thematic with current conditions. Text cultural (tradition) of the underlying footing and foundation become creative director for the spread of a "historiography" of travel time, say, ever since the emergence of a story with an oral tradition to written tradition until the present moment. Long period or epoch-it-looks stunning in a single framework can dimanpatkan stage with a short duration of the story by theater director. Almost all theater groups in Indonesia do not get out of such patterns and interpretations.

So the theater. Such events theater built from the text that "dead" becomes "live" on stage. And this is what distinguishes the significance between the literary text text view theater.

A Story of People's Representative

By Nasrul Azwar

My friend told me about one kurenah legislators who come from a district in West Sumatra. Name of representative members of these people, call it DR (HC) Sidi sling. She benefited from the electoral system. Somehow the logic of calculation, Sidi strap suddenly been sat on the loveseat Parliament from the Party, ESQ, call it used to be. Title in his name attached to it, who should not forget to write, no clear history and the history peraihannya. Suddenly there.

O, The Oprah Magazine (2-year)My friend's stories like this. Like other agencies, legislators do have the container of the organization to gather fellow legislators. The container name of All-Indonesian Association of Assembly Members (AADSI), call it such. The same was done fellow governors, regents and mayors as Indonenesia. Fortunately, only one president in this country, if more, the association would also emerged.

One time, AADSI hold a meeting in Jayapura, Papua province. All members of parliament are expected to attend in this city. DR (HC) Sidi strap long ago had been preparing his departure. For him, this grand meeting of the most important.

As usual, the parliament secretariat to prepare a makisimal everything, including the selected ticket executive. As many as 25 people leaving council members together in a single plane. Throughout ditampuah angok nose, this is the first time DR (HC) increased persawat Sidi sling. If not a member of the legislature, he probably will never ride patatabang.

With full confidence, and slightly raise my head (be advised members of the legislature), with entourage, DR (HC) Sidi strap down the corridor Minangkabau International Airport. And continue to enter the hatch. His heart was glad. He chooses a chair near the window. Was knocked down in his chair. Same time, a flight attendant approached the DR ((HC) Sidi sling.

The stewardess said: "Dad had to move seat, sir. Dad's supposed to in the executive? "

Instantly, DR ((HC) Sidi sling scold, "No! No! I'm not an executive. I legislature!"

Passengers who did not catch this one, at its discretion, the flight attendant let alone the DR ((HC) Sidi sling seat was chosen.

DR ((HC) Sidi sling went back look to the left and right, and above. Apparently, he studied all the angles and places from his chair. Seat belts are worn, and when it was he almost shouted to the passengers next to him. With his mother language, DR ((HC) Sidi sling cheered: "Oi relatives, batau juo gup urang patabang ko nan ne yo ride. From ateh patabang ko, yo look sagadang samuik urang urang-nan under tu."

"Tabang square Patabang ko lai, Sir. Still maagekkan masinnyo. Nan musty caliak tu, savannah samuik e, "said the passenger next to him.


Finally, after passing three times in transit, the group landed at Sentani Airport, Jayapura. Here they picked up and escorted to the meeting organizer, at a large hotel.

After resting a while, all the guests were treated to dinner. Because the entire Indonesian legislators come from various different religions, of the committee to provide and share the place of religion in accordance with their respective menus.

Manconconglah DR ((HC) Sidi sling while mencingangak near the desk organizer. Then with a soft and friendly language, the committee also asked the DR ((HC) Sidi sling.

"Sorry sir, you Muslim or ..."?

"Who says I am Muslim. My Sidi sling. Padang Pariaman Regent Muslim (meaning Muslim Eunuch), "said DR ((HC) Sidi strap firmly and confidently.

Tapurangah committee mendengan answer these legislators. And he even let DR ((HC) Sidi strap which passed either to the table.

Three-day meeting was held. Participants returned to their places. Many also are extending the day at the most eastern areas this. But, the group DR (HC) Sidi strap straight home as scheduled.

Arriving at the Airport Cengkareng, DR ((HC) Sidi strap seemed in a hurry. My friends are another surprise. Tagageh Bana DR ((HC) Sidi sling at the airport. "Manga tagageh Bana, Mr. Sidi," said one of the entourage.

"Oi you in the Jakarta ngangak Bana ko ma! That pant, lai musty-moldy deck looks brand tu: Baggage, "said DR ((HC) Sidi sling with his hand pointed to an inscription that hung near the entrance." Disuruahnyo bagageh crew! "

All my friends DR ((HC) Sidi sling smiled, but DR ((HC) Sidi sling did not bother. He still hurried.

Food Network Magazine (1-year)
Anecdotes about members of the legislature is not no social background. At the very least, an indication may be related to the emergence of the obnoxious attitude and also a cynical view of the nature of people's representatives over the years.

The proof, in the daily Singgalang, Wednesday, October 24, 2007, down 3 temperament sickening news of legislators. Two news on page 1 and one 4-page news. The news was essentially related to women. In mid August this year, two members of parliament arrested at a hotel in Bukittinggi. They are accused of using sabu-sabu and doing nasty.

In addition, West Sumatra community Lebaran also created confusion: the majority of legislators in West Sumatra 1999-2004 period (45) people have been declared guilty by law and also rejected kasasinya MA, and already do have legal certainty for panjara thrown in, apparently contradictory with 10 other members; their appeal accepted the Supreme Court, and declared free.

If dideretkan last two years, long dangling dangling temperament legislators in West Sumatra that make people not help wondering: why do things that violate the principle of appropriateness, norms, it conducted?

But, that's the reality. Reality legislators. Representatives elected by the people. It's not impossible, that the anecdote was told by my friend, really happening in this country. If this is so the quality of resources and a mentality that the legislative council: the average same level with DR ((HC) Sidi sling. ***Daily Singgalang, Wednesday, October 31, 2007

Yummy Become a Member of the Board

By Nasrul Azwar
Become a member of the House of Representatives was exciting. At least, partially funded with state money to live. Not only council member who received a blessing, family and children can also be sprayed. Because there are also some allowances allocated to children and a wife / husband. Morally, other family-out wife / husband and children, social status come up as well. Thus, the domino effect of a successful council seats, are quite large.

Power Politics as Investments

By Nasrul Azwar
Economistic political culture is a culture which views political power only as an investment. What is on the minds of prospective politicians rather than idealism, but the exchange rate. A prospective politicians are willing to pay hundreds of millions of rupiah because it knew that its investment would pay off bigger. Beside that, socio-economic inequalities also create a political culture in opposition to the equality of political opportunity for the public.

Whimpered softly but melodious voice when reciting poetry / song sang to the accompaniment sampelong saluang Bansi is playing. He it is familiarly called Tuen Islamidar by residents of surrounding villages. Tuen born on July 16, 1941 in Nagari Gutters Maua, District Mungka, regency. In the same village he lived to this day. Tuen are the inheritors and guardians of sampelong art, one art Minang tradition that still exists today. Living history is identical with the development of Tuen sampelong itself.

Tuen indeed come from families that bloody art. Her mother is a singer who also sang sampelong clever play drums. Who's the father was a skilled Qari reciting verses from the holy Koran with a good rhythm on the ear. His grandfather was a harp player. Similarly etek and mamaknya.

Sampelong rhythm is the rhythm that is played with similar saluang Bansi. Formerly, sampelong is a kind of music that was sung at the time menggampo dried. We do not wear it sampelong sang. Even if there sampelong rhythmic singing, but the accompanying music is Talempong. New since the year 1965, disposable sampelong sang. Poems / songs sang sampelong more revolves around the bitterness of life, keperihan fate, failure in love, poverty and all other grief. Sampelong lyrics is elegy: edible rice husk seemed, seemed drunk water thorns.

Sampelong, as manifested in Minangkabau Tuen existing before the arrival of Islam into this realm. Sampelong tones are tones of Buddhist songs. This is evidenced by the similarity with the existing tone in Thailand, a nation of culture and art is rooted in the Buddhist religion and also in areas of Palembang who had been a growing place of the Buddhist religion.
