Jakarta Event - Ghost Track LeineRoebana


Ghost Track LeineRoebana

February 08-09th 2012

LeineRoebana is a modern dance group founded by two choreographers, Andrea Leine (Dutch) and Harijono Roebana (Indonesian). The group has been known to audiences since the 1990s, and holds an important place in the world of dance in the Netherlands.

In the middle of last year at Teater Salihara, LeineRoebana demonstrated part of their latest work-in-progress, Ghost Track. The initial idea for Ghost Track comes from gamelan which Leine and Roebana find has an interesting sound character which challenges the sense of hearing. This collaboration also involves Iwan Gunawan who has roots in Sundanese traditional music and knowledge of Western contemporary music.  The basic question which they explore concerns differences that may appear in the movements of European and Indonesian dancers.

Ghost Track is an exploration undertaken by and towards dancers with different cultural backgrounds thus becoming an exploration of self and traditions found in each individual. The world debut performance of Ghost Track was held at the end of 2011. This performance of LeineRoebana is the Asian premiere of Ghost Track.
