36. Indonesia: Camar/ Seagul

At TheaterLab Garasi Theatre Ambassador Corinne Manara gave workshops and working towards a performance. At the end of April and the beginning of May the time had come; an adaptation of ‘De Meeuw’ by Anton Chekhov was played in Yogyakarta and Jakarta. She tells about the performance:
The performance was a nice mix of traditional and modern theater, both in the spirit of Indonesia and that of Europe. Corrina had made the performance in Bahasa (the common language of the archipelago) and had fused dialogues with movement and visual theater. This made the performance a dynamic whole and innovative for Indonesia. The players, students from Yogyakarta University, had a fresh and vibrant playing style, they enthusiastically dragged the audience into the performance.
