Sydney Festival presents Balabala, a dance repertoire by Indonesian choreographer Eko Supriyanto.

Performed by five women from North Maluku, Indonesia, the piece draws on the traditional martial art of Pencak Silat. Balabala sees the youth finding power against hierarchies of culture and gender through movement.

Collaborating with choreographer Arco Renz, Supriyanto’s Balabala seeks to give tribute to the Indonesian women of the past and the present.
