Kereb is common known as a white cloth with a specific spooky painting (the Celuluk painting) use in Calonarang dance performance. In the Calonarang performance, the Sisia Jegeg dancers use this Kereb as Lamak, and when dancing as Sisia Ngereh this Kereb becoming hair cover or head cover and playing it aggressively.

Rehearsal using the Kereb of our own works.

Tunas Maragawi is now currently making the Kereb(s). We planned to use these when dancing Sisia Jegeg and Sisia Ngereh of Calonarang performance in temple of Pura Desa Peliatan.

Tunas Maragawi ever made Sisia dance costume, but without Kereb. We think we could make it now, except the costume parts that made from leather and patterned Prada.

Using black color and the brush made of bamboo. Its difficult !!
