Celestial Sorrow - Meg Stuart & Jompet Kuswidananto/ Damaged Goods
Upon the invitation of the EUROPALIA INDONESIA festival, Meg Stuart and visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto, together with three performers and two musicians, embark on an exploratory journey into possession and implanted fictional traumas. Imaginary and invisible spaces, and the voices that make them resonate, are just some of the starting points for an adventurous leap into unknown territories.
Jompet Kuswidananto is a versatile artist who works in media ranging from installation and sound to performance and theatre. Each of his works researches the history of Indonesia and the complexity of contemporary existence in a globalized world. His practice focuses on themes like politics, colonialism, power, and mass mobilization in Indonesia after president Suharto’s resignation.
