Departemen Susastra, Fakultas Ilmu Budaya, Universitas Padjadjaran presents Mencari Pannggung Untuk Teater Kini?

Theater’s Place – Theater’s Stage  2nd November, 2013


 Is there a stage for theater today? Does it have a place in contemporary Indonesian (Bandung) society?  Is there a movement or has it simply died? How does the theatrical movement here compare to what is happening in the US and Britain? Do stages and theaters take on cultural identity? How context changes meaning  and  have theatre practitioners forgotten this? These are just a few of the questions  debated in  a lively afternoon of discussion and theater hosted by Department  Susastra UPAD, Jatingor. Lina Meilinawati Rahayu drama teacher, researcher  in Indonesian studies and co-author  Sastra Drama: Perjalanan, Perkembangan, Dan Pengkajiannya  (Literary Drama:  Process,  Development and It’s Use) will discuss some of her research ; Lestari Manngong  lecturer  and drama teacher at UNPAD discussing theater in the US and Britain and K. Dewantoro  founding member of DarahRouge and one of  a handful of female  theater practitioners in Indonesia actively  writing, performing and directing original  and new works for the Indonesian stage, will discuss her  journey in theater.


The discussion will be preceded by a showcasing of a new play, “Berapa Harga Cinta” written and directed by Ari Jogaiswara Adipurwawidjana and performed by alumni and students of UNPAD and then followed by  Bandung based theatre  DarahRouge’s performance, Menjahit Marat Sade”. Written and created by K.Dewantoro,  the play explores the  ideas of  revolution in both society, in theater and in one’s self and is interlaced with memories and text from  Peter Weiss’s “The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade.”  Staying true to the essence of the  original script, Dewantoro draws on range of theatrical styles as she sifts through her ‘roles’ in Indonesian theater.
