Theater’s Place – Theater’s Stage2nd 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 meaningandhave theatre practitioners forgotten this? These are just a few of the questionsdebated ina lively afternoon of discussion and theater hosted by DepartmentSusastra UPAD, Jatingor. Lina Meilinawati Rahayu drama teacher, researcherin Indonesian studies and co-authorSastra Drama: Perjalanan, Perkembangan, Dan Pengkajiannya(Literary Drama:Process,Development and It’s Use) will discuss some of her research ; Lestari Manngonglecturerand drama teacher at UNPAD discussing theater in the US and Britain and K. Dewantorofounding member of DarahRouge and one ofa handful of femaletheater practitioners in Indonesia activelywriting, performing and directing originaland new works for the Indonesian stage, will discuss herjourney 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 byBandung based theatreDarahRouge’s performance, Menjahit Marat Sade”. Written and created by K.Dewantoro,the play explores theideas ofrevolution in both society, in theater and in one’s self and is interlaced with memories and text fromPeter 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 theoriginal script, Dewantoro draws on range of theatrical styles as she sifts through her ‘roles’ in Indonesian theater.
