Experience the world premiere of a new staged song cycle from the visionary director Garin Nugroho.

This stirring, provocative work merges film with live dance and a 16-voice choir to impart a moving story of creation set against the backdrop of environmental disaster.

Nugroho, who stunned audiences at Asia TOPA 2017 with Satan Jawa, expands his canvas to portray a destroyed community struggling in the aftermath of a devastating tsunami. He again performs his alchemical mix of striking cinematics, haunting song, wild dance and ancient ritual to concoct a new myth that speaks to our complex times.

For this extraordinary new work, Nugroho collaborates with composers, visual artists and choreographers from across the Indonesian archipelago alongside Australian theatre luminaries Michael Kantor and Anna Tregloan.

The Planet – A Lament is an act of catharsis that mourns a world lost, while offering hope for another that may yet be nurtured in its wake.
