Tempat: Graha Bakti Budaya
After the international success of Cry Jailolo and Balabala, both created with youths of Jailolo, North Maluku, Eko Supriyanto turns his gaze towards himself in a new solo work. SALT, the third work in the ‘Trilogy of Jailolo’ brings together the past 5 years of Eko’s work and research into Silent Tourism, decentralisation, youth and the international performing arts industry. The pioneering choreographer of a new voice in Indonesian contemporary dance, Eko engages in a web of relations between his Javanese heritage and the shifting tides of maritime culture. Propelled by the experience of diving beneath the surface, Eko address the rhythms of maritime culture, the interplay between the forces of the ocean of which 80% of the Indonesian archipelago is comprised of. He unravels his roots as a classically trained dancer and it’s vocabulary that is tied to the dominant Javanese agricultural history of carving the soil. In SALT, Eko plunges into a state of anti-gravity beneath the ocean surface, a dance on embedded cultural hierarchies and changing perspectives.
