Topeng Monyet

Mask Monkey Performance

Salah satu pertunjukan topeng monyet yang digelar di alun-alun Sumedang pada akhir pekan. Topeng monyet atau dalam masyarakat Sunda lebih dikenal dengan sebutan doger monyet, merupakan salah satu pertunjukan kesenian tradisional jalanan yang sangat populer di Indonesia.

Topeng monyet (literally: Mask Monkey) is one of a famous traditional performance in Indonesia. The origin of word "mask" comes from the acts of the trained-monkey that usually wear a mask during its performance. The monkey also usually performs some attraction that is pretending to be and do like a human being such as riding a bike or a car (toy), wearing some uniform, going shopping, etc..
