SRT TEACHERS SALLY DEAN, JULIE NATHANIELSZ AND LILY KIARA TOGETHER WITH ARTISTS MARGIT GALANTER AND SUPRAPTO SURYODARMO, CO-FACILITATED A PROJECT IN INDONESIA IN JANUARY 2017, FIELD OF RECIPROCITY: INVESTIGATING PERFORMANCE, CULTURE & PRACTICE.
It was a three-week research project, into creating an environment of mutual exchange with a focus on performance, each participant bringing their own questions and interests. Facilitators convened a workshop to create a live, intimate, embodied exchange, as well as hold a conversational inquiry into culture, landscape, and our interactions with the place of Candi Teja Amerta, in Tejakula on the North Bali seacoast. We were fifteen people, from Indonesia, Germany, France, Netherlands, UK, and USA, coming from art, healing, education and conflict-resolution perspectives.
“Inherent in our lives, through our senses and perceptions is reciprocity. We are in an ever-changing dialogue of giving and receiving. How do we practice this in the frame of performance?”
