Inner worlds merge with the outer universe in this mystical work of contemporary dance.

Jagad began as a short dance film by by experimental Malaysian-Australian composer Monica Lim and iconic Indonesian director Garin Nugroho, danced by the Lengger dance virtuoso Rianto.

Now this renowned work has been expanded and transformed into a lavish experience of live performance.

This time, Monica Lim has teamed up with two of the most innovative contemporary dance-makers today, legendary Javanese dancer Rianto and Javanese-Australian choreographer Melanie Lane, to co-create this new work.

Inspired by Javanese concepts of the inner and outer universe – each feeding into and mingling with the other – this performance is a rich tapestry of overlapping viewpoints, the real and artificial, the physical and the ethereal. As scale shifts to dizzying effect, the fluidity of time is revealed.

Jagad translates as ‘universe’: discover your place in this one.
