The Seen and Unseen

Tarian ini terinspirasi dari film karya Kamila Andini berjudul sama menyabet predikat film terbaik pada Berlin Film Festival (Berlinale) 2018.

Pertunjukan ini menggabungkan seni tari, musik langsung, skor elektronik dan menciptakan perpaduan gerakan tari tradisional Bali dengan pendekatan kontemporer ke arah teater.

The Seen and Unseen berangkat dari filosofi masyarakat Bali “Sekala Niskala” yang berarti keseimbangan antara realita dan spiritual. Karya ini melibatkan Ida Ayu Wayan Arya Satyani sebagai koreografer dan sejumlah seniman dari Indonesia, Jepang dan Australia.

Sedangkan ada 3 tiga koreografer yang tampil pada Helatari 2019 adalah koreografer/kelompok tari terpilih undangan terbuka yang di adakan pada 2018 dengan nama diantaranya Anis Harliani Kencana Eka Putri, Ayu Permata Sari dan Eyi Lesar. Mereka inilah menciptakan tari Holy Body , X dan Ad Interim atau disebut dengan “Panggung Tari Baru”.

Holy Body

Menurut hasil dari pengamatan koreografer, ada ukuran-ukuran ideal yang harus dimiliki oleh penari perempuan untuk bisa menerima pesanan tari (komersial). Holy Body menawarkan konsep tari dokumenter yang berangkat dari riset tersebut dan mempertanyakan adakah tubuh yang ideal dalam estetika tari?

Anis Harliani adalah koreografer yang pernah berkolaborasi untuk pertunjukan Us/Not Us (2018) produksi Bandung Performing Arts Forum di Asian Dramaturg Network.  Beliau pernah mengikuti program Koreografer Muda Potensial di Indonesia Dance Festival 2018.

X

Karya ini adalah pengembangan motif “samber melayang”, salah satu motif dalam tari Sigeh Penguten (Siger Penguntin), sebuah tarian kreasi dari Lampung. Tarian ini mulanya adalah tari persembahan atau penyambutan untuk orang-orang terhormat, tetapi kali ini akan dilakukan tanpa musik, menggunakan kostum keseharian yang sederhana.

Ayu Permata Sari pernah berkolaborasi dengan koreografer luar negeri seperti Eisa Jocson (Filipina), Bethani (Amerika Serikat), Edgar Freire (Ekuador) dan Anne Maria (Jerman). Ia memperoleh penghargaan penghargaan “Jasa Bakti” di Festival Teknologi dan Seni ASIA di Johor Malaysia 2018.

Ad Interim

Ad Interim mengangkat tema perbedaan dan sifat bertolak belakang di masyarakat yang seharusnya dapat menjalin harmoni dan keseimbangan hidup. Seorang penari tunggal akan berkolaborasi dengan musisi yang menggunakan teknologi sensor gerak.

Ekspresi yang dihasilkan merupakan perpaduan antara gerak, musik dan tata cahaya. Eyi Lesar pernah beroleh Hibah Seni Inovatif dari Yayasan Kelola untuk karya Who Are You di tahun 2018. Ia pernah mengikuti showcase tari di SIPFest 2018.

Three Airs & The Two Doors

Park Na Hoon akan membawakan dua karya pentingnya. Three Airs membangun cerita tentang kehidupan manusia melalui tiga orang penari yang berlaku sebagai “organisme” udara. The Two Doors mengungkapkan makna dan rahasia penari melalui pernyataan-pernyataan saling bertentangan yang dilontarkan si penari.

Na Hoon Park adalah koreografer yang pernah terpilih sebagai seniman baru berbakat dari Dewan Kesenian Korea Selatan pada 2003. Karya Three Airs memperoleh penghargaan dalam 3rd Performing Arts Market (PAMS) di Seoul, Korea Selatan.

Ia telah tampil di sejumlah negara, mengikuti program kerja sama budaya serta pernah menjadi seniman mukiman antara lain di Jerman, Italia, dan Amerika Serikat.

Program seniman mukiman

Komunitas Salihara menyelenggarakan program seniman mukiman (artist-in-residence) untuk seniman dalam maupun luar negeri secara berkala. Kali ini bekerja sama dengan STRUT Dance Australia, Komunitas Salihara menerima Natalie Allen dan Samuel Harnett-Welk, dua koreografer dari Australia selama Helatari Salihara 2019.

Karya yang mereka bawakan dalam showcase Helatari Salihara 2019 adalah karya hasil selama menjalani program seniman mukiman.

Park Na Hoon staged award-winning Three Airs at Helatari Salihara 2019

4 years after he was titled the 2003 best newcomer artist by Arts Council Korea (ARCO), Park Na Hoon won the 3rd Performing Arts Market (PAMS) in Seoul with choreography work Three Airs.

It had been staged in 2015 San Fransisco International Art Festival and 2017 EiMa Festival, Spain.

His latest tour to Indonesia as an artistic director cum choreographer is to stage Three Airs and the Two Doors with fellow dancers Park Sang Jun, Moon Hyung Soo, and Kim Kyu Won in Helatari Salihara 2019.

The Two Doors had been staged in Acker Stadt Palast, Berlin, 2015, and Projekktheater, Dresden, 2016.

Park took part in a number of artist-in-residence program, such as the Korean-Finnish cultural exchange program in Helsinki, 2012, and the similar program in Denmark, German, Italy, and the United States.

Recently he was involved in Ari Project: Performing Arts Korean Contemporary Dance Performance, and the ever expanding Asian performance tours.

In Komunitas Salihara, Jakarta, Park Na Hoon showcased two of his important works. Three Airs is a narrative surrounding the lives of three people who represent organism in the air, whereas the Two Doors tells about how the choreographer discloses his secrets by repeatedly making contradictory self-inquiries.

According to the choreographer, the unrealistic movements of the organism feels more tangible. He perceives eccentric, foolish, and fictitious things that may seem unreal, yet heart-moving.

Moreover, the yes-no questions that remained unanswered were ultimately shared to the audience for the sake of sharing the particular frustration of oneself. Park views answers to these questions could might have revealed the conflicting truth about human existentialism against the world.

 

Nouveau center stage at Helatari 2019

Helatari Salihara had presented well-known choreographers and dance groups of local and international twice in 2015 and 2017. This year Helatari takes a different view on their curation by inviting public participation.

The program which began last year came to fruition as three aspiring entities were selected to showcase their latest works. They are Anis Harliani (Bandung) with her concept of documentary dance of Holy Body, Ayu Permata Dance Company (Yogyakarta) which synthesizes a traditional dance of her hometown, Lampung , and Eyi Lesar (Jakarta), laden with light show in Ad Interim.

Holy Body comes to be following the choregrapher’s observation of the accepted physical shapes of commercial dancers in her hometown, Bandung, West Java. It is a documentary work based on Harliani’s experience, and also dancers who come under the pressure of the esthetical view of dance.

X by Lampung dancer Ayu Permata Sari recreates Samber Melayang pattern typicaly found in Sigeh Penguten dance of nobility. It allows close distance between dancers and audience under minimum light and without music.

After performing in Salihara International Performing Arts Festival (SIPFest) 2018, Eyi Lesar showcases Ad Interim which highlight social conflicts and diversity that can lead to balance and harmony.

Ida Ayu Wayan Arya Satyani performs a work by script writer and movie director Kamila Andini in the Seen and Unseen which took inspiration from the award-winning movie of the same name for Kplus International Jury category of Berlin Film Festival (Berlinale) 2018.

The contemporary dance incorporates cross-cultural collaboration from Japan (composer Yasuhiro Morigana), Australia (designer Eugyeene Teh, lighting designer Jenny Hector, Adena Jacobs), and Indonesia (dancers of Komunitas Bumi Bajra, and the Balinese choreographer), demonstrating the spirituality of Balinese Sekala Niskala, of equally valuing the abstract and concrete elements of this world.

There are also Korean choreographers Park Na Hoon performing Three Airs & the Two Doors, and the young choreographer Maharani Pane from Tangerang.

To close the Helatari 2019, Komunitas Salihara will present Strut Dance Australia by Natalie Allen and Samuel Harnett-Welk as part of the artist-in-residence program with the National Choreographic Centre of Western Australia, showcasing works during their stay in Indonesia.

Dance film performance in the streets of south Jakarta

The interaction between dancers, people on the streets, cinematographer, and a technology-savvy all in real time presents an art-technology work of the choreographer Yola Yulfianti in a dance film performance, a bold idea that poses challenges in not only the unfamiliarity of the new medium, but also in the country’s current mobile data infrastructure.

Angkot is the Melting Pot uses live streaming to highlight the city transportation in Jakarta. For Yola, the Jakarta’s ubiquitous public minivan (angkot) suggests the physical closeness of the passengers crammed inside, but in the awkwardness of a heterogeneous society.

She also tempted to raise the impact of app-based transportation to the drivers that eats up a huge share of customers this traditional public transportation is so dependent on.

The two dancers in a public minivan started performing all the way from Pasar Minggu to Galeri Salihara, where it hosted the Helatari Salihara 2017. While several times being dangerous to perform in the boisterous afternoon streets, they intuitively responded to the circumstances, the angkot, the shops, the intersection, the city itself.

Technology makes possible

The 30 minutes street dance performance was captured by the camera phone, transmitted to the gallery and projected live at Galeri Salihara.

Despite lagging due to low quality mobile data connection, the audio visual artist Patrick Hartono said it was expected that he was half satisfied with the first trial at D-1.

He admitted that the case would have been different in a more developed parts of the world, but he clinged to another view that art should not be affected by the perfect result, but more importantly, the clear evidence of the process.

Yola said that she had encountered the streets of Jakarta such as Kampung Melayu or Kwitang ever since 2009, and collected the observations in numerous places for the future basis of her subsequent works.

She added that the medium to implement her idea depends much on the technological possibility. Harnessing it would bring her works to the scope of audience an ordinary show cannot possibly reach, that is the people on the streets where the dance takes place, the audience sitting in the art venue, and the internet users stumbling across video sites such as youtube while browsing.

The purpose of this work is to explore the complexity of the city, about how to read the city and then write the city into a work and bring humanitarian interaction. The process of artistic research does not focus on mainstream art products and terminology.

Dance in social environment

Not a product of a work of dance or a film product but about experience in the realities of urban life. The ability of the body as a medium of expression relates to other mediums, producing work that grows organically born just as the process of extracting ideas.

As for the expression it becomes a total expression, the sensitivity of being a dancer through the digging of the media of digital technology revealing the symptoms of the city’s social environment.

Angkot is the Melting Pot is inspired by daily experiences when riding on Jakarta’s urban public transport, or angkot. Inside the public minivan, the distance between bodies seems negligible and yet so foreign.
