HomeBlogs Prembon Development of Arja and mask dances in Bali created a form of Drama
called Prembon in 1942. Similar to Arja, this drama also shows stories
from the Babad. The differences between Prembon and Arja seem from the
masks used by the players. Arja players do not use masks, but in Prembon
all the players wears masks. The masks aim to more explicitly express
the character in Prembon, such as a king, common people, priest, etc.
Though wearing masks, the Prembon players converse among them.
