Canadian Artists Make Co-presentation with ISI Denpasar

Canadian Artists Make Co-presentation with ISI DenpasarTheir appearance is almost perfect. The gamelan compositions played were melodious and had the spirit. Beating technique, alternate low and high tones and their expression were equally interesting. Although it was not part of their culture, they were still capable of playing traditional gamelan instruments classified to be classic. It was truly enchanting.
It is the description on the performance made by Gita Asmara Studio from Vancouver Canada when making a co-presentation with the student of Gamelan Music Program in the Indonesia Institute of the Arts (ISI) Denpasar, Tuesday (Jul 16). They played the gamelan composition entitled Tabuh Pisan Bhaskara composed by I Wayan Sudirana, Legong Kuntul Dance, Sekar Susun gamelan composition and Wiranjaya Dance.

The most unique spectacle was the presentation of the Western contemporary Sphinx Dance in collaboration with Balinese contemporary gamelan music. The dance was performed by Justin A. Chamber, a world renowned choreographer. Meanwhile, the ISI Denpasar featured the Lelambatan Lokarya gamelan composition, Wiranjaya Dance, Kebyar Ding and Jauk Manis.
In addition, another interesting performance was the presentation of children through the Gangsa Dewa Studio led by Ketut Suryatini. Those teenagers were very good at playing gender musical instrument. They got vibrant applause when they made performance by presenting three gamelan compositions. Director of Graduate Studies Prof. Dr. I Wayan Rai S said the international mebarung or co-presentation was a rare opportunity to get. It was the realization of long-established networking made by the ISI Denpasar both locally and internationally. “Co-presentation with foreign gamelan troupe is to eliminate the impression if the ISI Denpasar is not only a champion at home, but can also learn from the shortage,” he said.

Output of the activity, he added, would also be able to change the mindset where the institution was also capable of speaking in national and international arena. “Well, the appearance of children through the co-presentation at this time is a reflection of Balinese culture that the art has existed in Bali and transferred since childhood,” he added. Meanwhile, Rector of the ISI Denpasar, Dr. I Gede Arya Sugiartha, who was present in the event welcomed the partnership realized through various activities. His party would continue to support any measures to maintain the good reputation of the institution in particular and Indonesia in general in international arena.
Previously, the artists from Canada also held a seminar attended by speakers from the University of British Colombia (UBC), Prof. Dr. Michael Tenzer and Dr. I Wayan Sudirana. Likewise, it was also held a workshop by presenting a modern and renowned dance choreographer from the United States, Justine A. Chambers. (BTN/015)
