'The Planet ; A Lament' is a collaboration led by the Indonesian Film maker, Garin Nugroho and dancers, singers and musicians from across Java, Papua, Timor and Sumatra. Made over six months in Jogjakarta, Jakarta and Kupang before premiering at the AsiaTOPA festival in Melbourne. Initially postponed by the pandemic it then went on to open the Holland Festival and perform at Theatre der Welt in Dusseldorf . It combines original compositions drawn from the Papuan tradition of lament with a story of destruction and loss, strength and rebirth.
This work joined several other projects by Anna Tregloan either developed in Indonesia (including parts of The Ghost Project ) or developed and presented there. (Cerita Anak with Polyglot Theatre and Papermoon).
The Planet was not just a theatre production but the journey to make it unusual and fascinating. To see more of that story and the work as it progressed visit HERE
