Enjoy interesting dish that combines West and East through Masres Theatre. Acculturation of European culture that brought the Portuguese in the 16th century with Indramayu culture turned out to be a kind of play that sweet, that is "Tonil". Western element is reflected in the setting stage, while the music is taken from a local gamelan art.
Interestingly, Masres name taken from a type of finely textured fabric, which is used in every show as a decoration. Once the fabrics are just a plain fabrics are color-coded and named Masres yellow, green Masres, Masres red, and others. In line with changes in the form of the show, plain-shaped decorations of cloth that is now painted decoration, called the display / screen (backdrop). The screen is not only complementary artistic or just sheer spectacle will be but it is a picture of the reality of life that is poured in a visual form (painting) and strengthen the storyline.
The stage play groups are generally sized 8 x 10 meters, with a height of about 1 meter. The roof is made of iron, or bamboo, with a protective tarp.
