Writer: Goenawan Mohamad
Coreographer and Artistic Director: Melati Suryodarmo
This piece manifests an interaction with one of Goenawan Mohamad’s poems. Orfeus presents a piece death as an event—a long scene following Eurydice’s leaving and Orpheus’s heartbroken goodbye. Melati Suryodarmo builds a lyrical choreography for this story, accompanied by Sri Hanuraga’s piano compositions and Anto Doso’s cinematic rejoinder. Bodily movements interwoven with melodies, visual and verbal presentations retell this Greek tragedy: death is finite, so is life.
