cakil - sri wisnuGerak cakil sangat tidak lazim jika di bandingkan dengan gerak tokoh-tokoh pewayangan dalam wujud tari. Biasanya dalam tari gaya surakarta dikenal joget alus, joget gagah, joget bapang, dan lain-lain. Tetapi untuk Cakil, dia tidak masuk dalam kategori manapun. Pada akhirnya gerak cakil diambilkan dari gerak tokoh cakil pada pertunjukan wayang kulit purwa yaitu berupa gerakan memutar, menekuk tangan (ceklek).

Video ini berisi mengenai gerak paling dasar (ceklekan) tokoh cakil diambil dari adaptasi gerak wayang cakil pada pertunjukan wayang kulit purwa.

Cakil is an interesting character both in Javanese Mahabharata story and in Ramayana story (Kalamarica). Cakil is the symbol of evil which always fight against the goodness as symbolized by a refined warrior. When Cakil is performed on the classical dance, it has so many interesting movements which is adapted from the The movements of Cakil in The Wayang Kulit Purwa performance, specially for the hand movements.
