A diagram representing Cebolang Minggat. Hovering over the different labels displays more information and clicking on the them loads the relevant chapter of the dissertation in the text panel (this window).
The diagram represents the formal characteristics and the themes of a performance. The five lines spreading from the center represent the vectors of adaptation: puppets, story, space, music and language.
The three concentric circles on the left represent the different approaches these vectors can take. The innermost circle (solid line) represents a conventional approach, the second circle (dashed line) represents an intermedial approach and the outermost circle (dotted line) represents a non-conventional approach.
The irregular pentagon in light blue represents the vectors and their approaches for a particular performance. In the example above, the puppets are intermedial because the line intersects with the second circle. In the same way, the story is non-conventional, the space is non-conventional, the music is intermedial and the language is intermedial.
The spheres to the right of the diagram, spreading from the "story" label, represent the ethic explorations of a performance. A small sphere indicates that a particular ethic theme is explored through tangential references, whereas a big sphere means the theme is explored through plot development.
