'The Planet ; A Lament' is a collaboration led by the acclaimed Indonesian film maker, Garin Nugroho with 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. It went on to open the Holland Festival and perform at Theatre der Welt in Dusseldorf .
Combining original compositions drawn from the Papuan tradition of lament with a story of destruction and loss, strength and rebirth the design used a mass of second hand clothes to convey the both the sense of loss and mountainous task of combatting climate change.
This project continues Anna Tregloan's ongoing working relationships in Indonesia having previously developed The Ghost Project and developed and presented Cerita Anak with Polyglot Theatre and Papermoon there. More about the process of creating the design can be seen HERE
