Jakarta Event - Dance DiBelakang

Di Belakang

Choreographer by Martinus Miroto
Composer by Patrik Gunawan

This contemporary dance performance is a result of the desire of the choreographer, Miroto, to delve into various layers of culture instilled in the bodies of masked dancers from four different regions; Cirebon, Bali, Madura, and Yogyakarta.  By bringing together these four dancers, Miroto explores the body movements and dance movement aesthetics that are a part of each one.  This dance piece is accompanied by a composition of electronic music by Patrik Gunawan, together with recordings of gamelan music which are inseparable from the dance movements.

Although he began with masked dance, this performance will not use the element of masks.  Miroto wants to show what is behind the masks usually worn by these dancers, their physical forms and movements.  The body dialogue and blending among the dancers finally appears as a celebration of the values of life and humanity.
