Barong: The Tale of Kunti Sraya

October 18, 2015

If you’re free on the very auspicious 13 November (Friday), do come and support Barong: The Tale of Kunti Sraya, a production featuring the students from the Department of South East Asian Studies who have taken a module in Balinese Performing Arts and have spent time learning Balinese dances in Bali. Also featuring guest performers from Bali!

If you’re interested in a brief overview of the Barong mythology, Mr Wikipedia is happy to help.

You can also check out their facebook page [at this link] for more details and updates on ticketing.

October 18, 2015

Honoured to have had a chance to support Sanggar Tari Soerya Soemirat in their recent performance at the Esplanade by lending them part of our gamelan and providing other logistical and language assistance 😀

In case you missed them – or want to re-live the magic – here are the videos, generously taken and uploaded to youtube by the awesome team of Haiqal Tahir and Matin Haiqal.

Wrapping up our August Excitement

October 17, 2015

So August turned out to be really exciting, with 3 performances featuring our full ensemble: the Javanese Fiesta, the World Cultures Festival at library@esplanade, and “Crossing Borders” at the Esplanade Waterfront. All these featured dances, performed by Ms Nunuk Sri Rahayu, and Ms Rizky Indraswari, and were filmed and generously uploaded by Haiqal Tahir, Matin and Nayli.

Thanks to everyone who came down to support our shows! Looking forward to Lintas Nusantara, happening from the 16-21 November, with a 2 night showcase on the 20th and 21st. Watch our site or facebook for more details!
