Indonesian film director Garin Nugroho’s latest masterpiece is a silent dance film in black and white, accompanied live by the exquisite gamelan compositions of Rahayu Supanggah. The film is set at the beginning of the 20th century, and is a Javanese take on the classic Faustian legend of a pact made with the devil (setan) in order to gain riches and love.
Setan Jawa was premiered at Asia TOPA, Arts Centre Melbourne, in February 2017. (Please note: this performance is the gamelan-only version, without chamber orchestra.)
This event marks the culmination of the 5-day London Gamelan Festival.
Performance sponsored by Ministry of Education And Culture of the Republic of Indonesia.
