DAUNT IN SOYA SOYA
The dynamic of our human characters within its embodied environments, with its contrast or unity between toughness and softness, masculinity and femininity.
Inspired by silat, a Javanese martial arts and a war dance from North Maluku Soya Soya dance, Eko Supriyanto is recalling back the embodied awareness on the accession of power, speed, as well as the reflects towards attack and defense. Supriyanto challenged his dancers and himself to confront their knowledge and practices in the Javanese traditional dance, in which Banyu Mili” (flow) as the main philosophy of the movement, by entering the area of silat’s and Soya Soya’s rigors, speed, and fight techniques. In the beginning of this process, Supriyanto has trained the dancers by sending them to learn from his silat master from Magelang, as well as Soya Soya dance in Ternate North Maluku. This intensive process brought them into more awareness and concrete physical comprehension especially when they appears with vivid presence within the boundaries of the beauty of Javanese dance and the vigorous movement of silat and a war dance.
