Semar is the court jester of the Javanese and Balinese performance of Wayang, probably the most popular form of theatre in Java and Bali, where stories of Gods are performed as puppet-, shadow- or dance shows.
Semar impersonates the good. His followers are friendly people and he has won the respect and the favour of his audience. He is the mediator in dialogues, the jester, but he also criticises and gives advice. He entertains, educates, advises and protects the king. For the audience, Semar is a role model. As a human incarnation of a God, he is also a cryptic figure: God and human servant at the same time, neither man nor woman, looking like a clown his fat belly, his knobbly nose and his drooping lower lip, deep inside being pure, with a good heart and clever.
