Speakers: Agnesia Linda Mayasari & Yola Yulfianti

We discuss the intersections between traditional dance and world dance vernaculars. Some interesting questions to explore: does the choreographer need to burden the body with concepts? Do movements that greatly wish to discuss philosophical issues end up shackling the dancers? May the body move freely as though in play? With two young Indonesian choreographers, we will be able to discuss these themes openly and in a relaxed way.
