Abstract

Tayub is a folk art that is still enjoyed by the community in Grobogan Regency. This study was aimed to describe the meaning of the symbols found in the Tayub show. The research method used was a qualitative descriptive method which is conducted through interview, observation and documentation. Tayub Madyo Laras art upholds the value of politeness and beauty in every performance—impolite, rude, and erotic acts are not used. In addition, in this modernization era, Tayub Madyo Laras art still survives and is still popular. The result of this study shows that there are various symbolic foods which are displayed in the Tayub art performance, including ceremony offerings, gamelan music, costumes, dance, and saweran.
