BORROW consists of fragments that are put together in a performative presentation based on different influences and backgrounds that led her to create Sisyphus, an ongoing research for a choreography piece, which focuses on the body as a container of memories and how the body can remember its movements that appeared when it was under the condition of shamanistic possession. The presentation will include demonstrations of movements and parts of Suryodarmo’s previous works, including EXERGIE – butter dance.

Melati Suryodarmo

Melati Suryodarmo’s performances have been dealing with the relationship between a human body, a culture in which it belongs to and a constellation where it lives. Through the presence, she compiles, extracts, conceptualized and translates some phenomenon or subjects into movement, actions, and gestures that are specified to her performance. Melati Suryodarmo´s performances concern with cultural, social and political aspects, in which she articulates through her psychological and physical body. Her performances feature elements of physical presence and visual art to talk about identity, energy, politics and relationships between the body and its environments.
