Sigale-gale is a dance that originated from Samosir, North Sumatra. The dance is performed by a human-shaped doll or statue. It is similar with wayang golek which is danced by a puppeteer with the accompaniment of traditional musical instruments. The Sigale-gale doll is made of wood and modified by roped connecting the hinge or the joint of the puppet so it can be controlled from far.
