New creation

Following the international success of Cry Jailolo and Balabala – both created with young people from the Indonesian province of North Maluku – dance pioneer Eko Supriyanto has shifted his focus to himself with a solo, SALT. He revisits the theme of Cry Jailolo: the threat to his homeland’s marine life. He explores the relationship between Javanese cultural heritage and the rhythm of the underwater world – a world without gravity where another perspective emerges. He draws from his classical dance training, his diving experience, and the Javanese agricultural tradition of carving in the ground. 

Eko Supriyanto is one of the central figures of Indonesia contemporary dance. Trained in Javanese court dances and the Indonesian marital art pencak silat, his career spans an impressive journey across Indonesia, Europe, the United States and East Asia.

About Eko Supriyanto

Eko Supriyanto is an influential Indonesian dancer, trained in Javanese court dance and martial arts. As a child, he learned the traditional Javanese dances from his grandfather. He would later intertwine these with Balinese and modern dance. Supriyanto became a world-renowned authority in the dance world, so much so that pop icon Madonna took him on her "Drowned' tour in 2001.

The refined dance style of Supriyanto often draws from the rhythmic movements of traditional dances but also speaks a contemporary language. Themes in his work refer to current situations in his native region: the state of nature ('Cry Jailolo') or the position of women ('Balabala'). The choreographer invariably works with young performers from that same region.

“For me, contemporary dance must be about mankind. It would make no sense and have no meaning for me to simply make something eccentric. A performance must be connected to people and must carry a message in itself that is open to various interpretations.” - Eko Supriyanto
