This paper discusses the incident of communal conflict between people in Balinuraga and Agom Villages, Lampung Province from Goffman’s Dramaturgy point of views. A case study and qualitative research method were used and data was collected through purposive sampling technique using: in-depth interview; observation; and documentation. Data was analyzed through qualitative approach with the process of data reduction, presentation, and conclusion. The location of research studies was in Agom and Balinuraga Villages, South Lampung Regency. This paper examines that the peak incidence of communal conflict between villagers resulting from lack of constructive handling conflict management in preventing and reducing conflict. This paper revealed that the incidence of conflict or intersection occurred due to lack of comprehensive handling efforts since there is the fact that the process of cessation of conflicts and acts of violence were perpetrated by military intervention. This paper, therefore, suggests that in dealing and handling conflict, it is necessary to absorb various aspirations of conflicting society, rather than top-down approach. In addition, indigenous institutions as a counterpart of local customs and forum for cultural preservation should have more roles in resolving conflicts so that the functioning of customary institutions is expected to safeguard, enhance, and preserve the culture of each party in conflict.
