Eko Supriyanto is one of the most influential dancers / choreographer from Indonesia. With his background in Javanese court dances and Indonesian martial arts, his performances are a flawless blend of traditional and contemporary dance movements. His work has been shown in festivals across Asia, Europe and America.

For Balabala he is working with five expressive dancers from Maluku. With slow, rhythmic movement patterns they create a piercing depiction of strength. They each strive to carve a space for women in which potential and creation are central. Inspired by the nine directions of the Pencak Silat (martial arts) philosophy, the dancers express the different roles of women in Indonesia. A powerful performance with a strong female (dance) force.

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
