Tayub is one of the Javanese performing arts and it is widely known among people in rural areas. Despite the fact that today it is commonly perceived as a form of popular entertaintment, it has initially served as a sacred dance, intended to encourage such a magical attraction as fertility either agricultural plant fertility or marital fertility as well for general safety.

A world view underlying this performing art is a mythical one, in which it assumes that the world as a whole is being dominated by supernatural power. As this power can be either friendly or hostile, a ritual performance like Tayub is perceived to be necessary as a way ti create a good relationship or to resolve a tension between human being and the world dominated by supernatural power.
