Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This article explores why the Javanese, like the Balinese,
seem to have stage fright. Based on closer analysis of Javanese etiquette and concepts of
self and identity, the author disagrees with this view. Interviews with individual actors
shows that what they expereince when asked to perfom is not stage fright, but something
which the author called 'status fright', a fear that the role one plays on stage would
confuse people about one's true 'self' and real identity in the community.
