Just like Meg Stuart, EUROPALIA INDONESIA gave theatre director Gisèle Vienne carte blanche to explore Indonesian culture. Along with Sunn O))) co-founder Stephen O’Malley she travelled to Java and Bali to immerse herself in the magical world of performative rituals. Their encounter with musician Wukir Suryadi, co-founder of Senyawa, revealed profound resonances. This evening showcases their shared venture through a common musical philosophy.

Starting with rituals and celebrations – from the archaic to the contemporary – Gisèle Vienne brings a group of 15 youngsters together who dance to a DJ set by Peter Rehberg. Contrary to the discourse that labels all violence as barbaric, she looks for manifestations of violence that do play a valuable, positive role in society.

Meg Stuart and visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto embark on a journey of artistic investigation through collective memories and implanted fictional traumas. Imaginary and invisible spaces – and the voices that make them resonate – are one of the starting points of an adventurous leap into unknown territories.

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.

For CROWD, French artist and choreographer Gisèle Vienne invited fifteen youngsters to surrender to the techno beats of the 90s. We meet her some weeks before the premiere, to talk about the presentations and representations of violence, Indonesian rituals, and artist-made funerals.
