Cablaka is a contemporary dance piece that draws influence from Banyumasan lengger traditions and dangdut performances. We can even look at it as a specimen of inter-tradition dialog, in both movement and symbolism. The “romanticism” of sub-urban dangdut music is achieved and presented here without having to diminish calung music and Banyumasan vocal characteristics.
Otniel Tasman explores and expands upon myriad dance forms rooted in Banyumasan tradition, interpreting them in a contemporary way. His most recent works include Barangan (2013), Pending Dariah (2015) and Stand Go Go (2017). In 2017, he danced at Europalia Arts Festival (deSingel, Belgium), performing one of his strongest works Nosheheorit (2017).
