Medium & Losari Mask Dance — Rianto & Nani Topeng Losari Cirebon


  • 20.00 Stadsschouwburg
  • 22.30 Expected end time


Two outstanding Indonesian dance styles, with live percussion

Belgian arts festival Europalia Indonesia visits Bruges with this exceptional double bill. In his home region, Javanese dancer Rianto learnt the cross-gender lengger dance from old masters. For his solo Medium, he collaborates with leading Indonesian filmmaker Garin Nugroho and with percussionist/vocalist Cahwati. In the second part of the evening, an impressive gamelan - an ensemble composed primarily of traditional Javanese percussion instruments – accompanies the Topena Cirebon, a typical graceful mask dance from West Java.
