Uncharted territory

Upon the invitation of the Europalia Indonesia Festival, Meg Stuart and visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto went on an artistic voyage of discovery across contemporary Indonesia. Imaginary and invisible spaces – and the voices that resound within them – are the starting point for an adventurous exploration into uncharted territory.

Jompet Kuswidananto is a versatile artist who works in media ranging from installation and sound to performance and theatre. Each of his works researches the history of Indonesia and the complexity of contemporary existence in a globalized world. His practice focuses on themes like politics, colonialism, power and mass mobilization in Indonesia after president Suharto’s resignation.

As a new voice within the contemporary Indonesian dance landscape, Eko Supriyanto explores the relationship between Javanese cultural heritage and the rhythm of the underwater world – a world without gravity where new perspectives emerge. He draws from his classical dance training, his diving experience, and the Javanese agricultural tradition of carving in the ground.

Just like Meg Stuart, EUROPALIA INDONESIA gave theatre director Gisèle Vienne carte blanche to explore Indonesian culture. She immersed herself in the magical world of performative rituals full of masks and puppets.

A man moves carefully between cardboard set pieces. Everything appears peaceful in this stylized paradise, until a sudden rain shower escalates into a destructive deluge. A decade after the première of BLESSED, Francisco Camacho continues to cling to a world that has long been left in ruins.
