Video and visual artist Garin Nugroho pushes back the limits of cinema in a performance bringing together a silent film, a symphonic orchestra and a Javanese gamelan.

about the show

Sales for Setan Jawa will be opening on the week of October 19, 2020

A beguiling combination of a silent black-and-white film, a gamelan ensemble and a symphonic orchestra, Setan Jawa is a complete show in itself. Against the backdrop of a décor portraying colonial Indonesia, the avant-garde Indonesian film-maker Garin Nugroho tells the story of Setio, a poor villager who makes a deal with the devil to win the heart of the rich Asih.
Sublimated by the musical scores of Rahayu Supanggah and Iain Grandage, the images are delicate and mystically powerful with a pulsating musical dialogue embodied by twenty-eight first-rate musicians of the gamelan Indonesian Garasi Seni Benewa Ensemble and French ensemble Le Balcon.

Recommended from 12 years (some of the scenes might offend the sensibility of young audience).
