“Dark and Light”
Suprapto Suryodarmo – Bewegung, Tanz
Klaus Janek – Kontrabass
Tim Jones – Stimme, Sound
Basically humans always want to get the brightness, the light. We tried to depart from dark to light, and we do not know when the light comes.
How does our own making light in our darkness, is a way to meet the
light life outside of ourselves.

Since 1970, Suprapto Suryodarmo (Prapto) has studied free movement, Vipassana, and Javanese Sumarah meditation techniques – placing these practices within the nature, temple and human field. He was initiated into Javanese Theravadin Buddhism in 1974 and also created a new ritual art that he titled “Wayang Buddha” (Buddha’s Shadow-Puppet). In 1986, Prapto established his own school Padepokan Lemah Putih, a uniquely landscaped garden in Mojosongo, just north of Solo, Central Java. He has taught and performed in Indonesia, Europe, the UK, Australia, USA, Mexico, Japan, India, and the Philippines for over 20
years. The main intention of his Joged Amerta movement work is to develop a way to lessen the sense of identification through the practice of movement arts. Hence, it is more than an approach to improvisation; Joged Amerta is a practice cultivating an attitude towards life.
