GELOMBANG
at SASIKIRANA DANCE CITY, DENSITY

Sasikirana - Dance City, Density was a 10 day contemporary choreography lab and dance camp held at NuART Sculpture Park, Badung, West Java, Indonesia from 1-9 August, 2016.  Under the mentorship of Eko Supriyanto (Indonesia), Arco Renz (Belgium), Uni Tati (Indonesia), and Fathurrahman Bin Said (Singapore), 6 young Southeast Asian choreographers developed new and experimental pieces with a competitively selected group of Indonesian and international dancers.  More information here. 

Ari Rudenko was a selected dancer, and performed in "Gelombang" by Ruki Daryudi "Yudi" Tankcer (Singapore), based upon the choreographer's 3 month experience living and researching with the entirely sea based tribe Suku Laut, not far from Singapore.  His piece focused on the body's balance on the ocean waves and the ethics of space and community on small boats, in contrast to the wave of globalization which threatens to wipe out their traditional way of life.
