Inspired by the many small spaces of interaction that combined form the interrelated chains and networks of Jakarta, the dancers and the audience will be together in several different spaces. Supported by the performance artists Irwan Ahmett and Tita Salina, the audience will be moving continuously through private and urban space while changing into different groups in size and constellation. This shared experience will end in a kitsch garden of artificial plants designed by visual artist Iswanto Hartono. A group of young artists named “Cut and Rescue” will create a sound installation, acoustic space and music composition consisting of Indonesian songs and Jakarta’s diverse soundscapes. Costumes for the performers will be specifically created by Indonesian designer Didiet Maulana of the fashion house IKAT Indonesia. We cordially invite you to join us in this spatial and movement experiment and to get into the groove!

volution / groove space is specifically produced for the German Season by Goethe Institute Indonesia and will be performed only in Jakarta as its reference city.
