Ikbal Lubys


Island of imaginations (2015)

As live music performer with Melati Suryodarmo, Frankfurt Lab, Germany & Kuns DeSingel, Belgium.

The sounds of a plough strung with bamboo and metal strings carries the movements of four dancers across the stage, through an emerging weightless space, repeatedly shattered by eruptive movements. In her newest piece, Melati Suryodarmo – one of Indonesia’s leading performance artists and alumna of Marina Abramović – performs a contemporary ritual whose concentrated imagery is utterly captivating.
