Nani Topeng Losari Cirebon & Rianto

Two outstanding Indonesian dance styles, with live percussion.

In his home region, Javanese dancer Rianto learnt the cross-gender lengger dance from old masters. For his solo Medium, he collaborates with leading Indonesian filmmaker Garin Nugroho and with percussionist/vocalist Cahwati. In the second part of the evening, an impressive gamelan - an ensemble composed primarily of traditional Javanese percussion instruments – accompanies the Topena Cirebon, a typical graceful mask dance from West Java.
