Le Safran

In Cry Jailolo seven young Indonesian dancers deliver a powerful message of hope and optimism concerning the survival of coral reefs. Jailolo, situated on one of Indonesia’s Maluku Islands, is known as one of the greatest diving spots in the world, however, its natural beauty is also under threat of disappearing due to climate change. 

Eko Supriyanto, probably the most influential Indonesian dancer / choreographer of his generation, became fascinated by both the local community and the marine life found in and around Jailolo, and drew inspiration from his experience there to develop this new creation. He calls it a performance of ‘silent tourism’. Compelling rhythms leading a menacing soundtrack are alternated with expressive solos: as beautiful and as rich as coral life itself.


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 EUROPALIA INDONESIA, Eko Supriyanto will show three performances at Vooruit with: Cry Jailolo, Balabala and his latest solo SALT. Read the interview with Eko Supriyanto here (in Dutch).

“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
