Earth Dance, the story of four generations of Balinese women, centers on conflicts that arise between the demands of caste and personal desires. Narrated by Ida Ayu Telaga, a Balinese woman in her thirties, the novel shows Balinese women-as depicted by her mother, grandmother and female peers-to be motivated by two factors: the yearning to be beautiful, and the desire for a high-caste husband. Headstrong Telaga defies her mother's wishes and marries the man of her dreams, who is a commoner. Thus, in a reversal of societal expectations, as shown in the novel by images of women who aspire to "liberation" through "marrying up", Telaga's emancipation is implicitly characterized as a move downwards, through transformation to the status of a commoner. Earth Dance also reveals that-like high-caste status-beauty, too, has a price. Behind the thick, glossy hair and golden complexion, lies a web of jealousy, derision and intrigue. Telaga, whose life is controlled by her mother's avarice, her mother-in-law's bitterness and the greed of her sister-in-law, has frequent cause to wonder: "Is this what it means to be a woman?"

Jordens dans by Oka Rusmini( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in Swedish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berättelser av och om balinesiska kvinnor är en passande beskrivning av boken ni håller i era händer. Författaren, en balinesisk kvinna som är uppvuxen i Jakarta, Indonesiens huvudstad, ger i Jordens Dans röst åt fyra generationer av kvinnor. Boken lämpar sig utmärkt för de som vill lära känna Bali bättre inför eller efter resan dit, och är även intressant för de som bara vill uppleva en intensiv och spännande berättelse med mycket livshistoria. Oka Rusmini skärskådar sin egen kultur och lyfter fram sidor som ofta döljs bakom turismens kulisser. Hon beskriver och kritiserar en mansdominerad kultur genom att berätta om hur kvinnorna konfronterar sin verklighet. Men Oka krossar inte bara de myter som omger Bali, hon ger också utrymme för den mystik som format dem
