The papers appearing in this volume cover a representative range of traditional Malay genres including main puteri, the most important Malay shaman ritual, several proto-theatre forms, the shadow play (wayang kulit), mak yong as well as the Thai-Malay dance-theatre form known as menora or nora chatri. Issues related to origins, and the historic and aesthetic connections with genres in neighbouring countries are raised in several papers, while others examine the functions of specific genres. Also discussed are transformations that rural genres such as mak yong have experienced as they move away from the traditional setting to new urban contexts such as the national theatre. In addition several of the papers deal with the sources of dramatic repertoire including the Ramayana and Mahabharata in their local versions.
