  • Indonesia street monkey shows maintain popularity after gov't eases COVID-19 restrictions

    Depok, Sep 30 (EFE/EPA).- The street monkey performances still maintain their popularity in several parts of Indonesia, especially after the government lowered the level of Enforcement of Restrictions on Community Activities (PPKM) in a number of areas during the COVID-19 pandemic. A street monkey performance, known as 'Topeng Monyet' or 'Monkey Mask' is a popular form of cheap entertainment in Indonesia, especially on the island of Java. During the show, a trainer usually issues orders by pulling the chain tied around the primate's neck, forcing it to perform tricks such as wearing a mask or riding a toy motorcycle. The Indonesian government banned the Topeng Monyet in the capital Jakarta in 2013 to improve public order and ending animal abuse, although the shows are still popular in several other parts of the country.
