Masres drama is a kind of folk art shows which is spread up and develops in Cirebon and
Indramayu. The term of Masres was taken from a kind of soft fabrics which is used as its
decoration shows. Formerly, that fabric was a plain, then colored and named as yellow
Masres, green Masres, red Masres, and others. While the appearance show changing, this
plain decoration turn into painted decoration, named as kelir or backdrop. The backdrop is
not only as an artistic complementary or for merely performance, but it represents the
realities that depict on visual form (painting) and course of the show. Dharma Samudra is a
group drama, lives in Cangkring village, Cirebon, is one of the Masres drama groups that still
exist. They use backdrop as show decoration. The backdrops which

analyzed in this research are the backdrops from “Jaka Pendil”. The visualizations of Dharma
Samudra’s backdrops had values that refer to Cirebon’s culture characteristic and symbol
meanings. The Dharma Samudra backdrops visualization is an empirical and aesthetical
experience for the painter. There are many Cirebon’s culture characteristics and symbols that
depicted in the backdrops by the painters, although significantly the symbols could not
represent the entire meaning of backdrops. These visualizations tend to merge aesthetical the
characteristics of Cirebon culture, that observed and depicted by the painters. Implicitly,
these visualizations set up rules in Masres backdrops creation and the painters maintained
them unless there is adjustment in the plot.
