Capturing the spellbinding duality of the tensions between life-giving water and caustic salt, this engaging and mesmeric solo work is suggestive of embedded cultural hierarchies and changing perspectives.

Salt

Eko Supriyanto

Indonesia
Adelaide Premiere

Eko Supriyanto is a pioneering choreographer in Indonesian contemporary dance. Following on from his acclaimed production Cry Jailolo (OzAsia Festival 2015), this latest work combines the forms of Jatilan (Magelang folk trance dance) and Cakalele (war dance from North Maluku), and places them within the state of weightlessness, addressing the rhythm and force of the ocean, which makes up 80% of the Indonesian archipelago.

Capturing the spellbinding duality of the tensions between life-giving water and caustic salt, this engaging and mesmeric solo work is suggestive of embedded cultural hierarchies and changing perspectives. Driven by Dimawan Krisnowo Adji’s dream-like score, Salt is an acclaimed piece fundamentally rooted in nature and our place within it.
